Local distiller to combat Covid-19 with free hand sanitiser

The Alyth-based Highland Boundary distillery has responded to the worsening Covid-19 crisis in Scotland by switching production to hand sanitiser rather than the brand’s regular award-winning Scottish spirits.

Highland Boundary is donating its hand sanitisers to key services in the NHS, charities and front-line essential workers, with extra bottles available for the local community to buy at cost price.  

The sales to the local community on a ‘buy-one/donate-one’ basis will allow the brand to support the free supplies to the health and care sectors. 

Bottles will be available to buy in Alyth on Saturday 4th April from 11am until 2pm at Bank House garden, next to Airlie St Hall. 

Director Dr Marian Bruce said:  “During this pandemic, we wanted to do our little bit and use our time and resources in the best way possible. We know that there are many people pulling together in their communities right now, and it’s been so wonderful to watch this and be a small part of it. 

“If you know a community NHS health provider or charity that has a critical need for hand-sanitiser then please pass our details on to them and ask them to get in touch.  We’re also looking for district nurses in our area, who are out supporting vulnerable people in their homes, to see if we can support them by providing hand sanitiser, so please get in touch if you know of someone we can help. 

“It’s important to us at Highland Boundary that everyone is healthy, safe and looking after themselves and family. We hope that being able to provide this small service to our community may benefit and help as many of you as possible.”

Highland Boundary was founded in 2018 by husband and wife team Marian Bruce and Simon Montador.  It produces premium spirits and liqueurs flavoured with birch and elderflower gathered sustainably from the local environment.  In its first year of operation, the business won gold and silver medals at international wine and spirits competitions in America and Europe.
