As it’s announced that police will be taking further measures against those who break the isolation rules, local distillers Didsbury Gin have announced that they’ll be switching their production to generating hand sanitiser for the Greater Manchester Police force.

Police are currently tasked with patrolling local areas to ensure that the public is following the government’s latest Coronavirus rules, and will now be making arrests if people are found to be “flouting” the lockdown rules.

Our local police force will be on the front line of the virus, faced with the public on a daily basis to help protect the rest of us. To show appreciation and help during this time of need, Didsbury Gin will be manufacturing only hand sanitiser for the foreseeable future, switching their gin production especially for the gesture. The disinfectant will be provided to the Greater Manchester Police, in a bid to keep reduce risks of infection as much as possible for our local officers.

Liam Manton, the founder of Didsbury Gin, said: “The chancellors’ recent comments about ‘being judged by our capacity for compassion’ really struck a chord with us during last week’s statement. We are extremely proud to be doing our bit for the community during this difficult time.”

Didsbury Gin was founded back in 2017 and has gone from strength-to-strength since appearing on Dragon’s Den in 2018.
