Cygnet Distillery release CYG80 range of Hand Sanitiser following CYGNIFICANT demand from NHS & front line key workers


Market leaders Cygnet Distillery have launched CYG80; an 80% alcohol based hand rub sanitiser.

This comes after the distillery has been in high demand to create a product to support, supplement and aid the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The hand rub has been carefully developed after extensive research, planning, protocol and will now be rolled out in line with the large demand for sanitisers through the NHS, key and front line industries.

Undoubtedly one of the busiest and largest micro distilleries in South Wales, the team behind Cygnet Gin and Cygnet Pinc Gin have now turned their attention to providing the anti bacterial and anti viral hand rub. CYG80 is approved and recommended by the World Health Organisation to those who need it at this crucial and unprecedented time.

The Cygnet team have managed to overcome many obstacles during creating CYG80, including sourcing ingredients, alcohol, bottles and packaging, however the unwavering demand and working around the clock seven days a week both at home and in the distillery, CYG80 is now available for general sale and enquiries on larger bulk orders.

Master Distiller Dai Wakely;

“We recognise that this is a completely unprecedented time. We never imagined at the start of the year that this is the colossal turn that the company would take. To think the distillery is now operating 80% of the time as a turn key operative for hand sanitisers is not something I would have planned on, yet it is something we are completely immersed in and so grateful that we are in a position to help those who are actively seeking this product. 

“We embark on this next chapter with positivity and a mindset of knowing that we’re helping fill a gap; we’re committed to producing and providing front line workers with sanitisers to ensure their safety. Dentists, supermarkets, operational schools and educational facilities, livestock and food production companies are all those that we’re committed to servicing right now. We have been working all hours to make sure we have a system in place to be able to provide this for the long term if necessary and that’s our focus.”
