Southern Wild Distillery moves from gin to hand sanitiser for local community


Many Tasmanian businesses are looking for ways to help out the local community, whilst also keeping themselves stay afloat through these difficult times.

Devonport’s Southern Wild Distillery has managed to transform its manufacturing processes from producing gin, to making much-needed hand sanitiser for essential services in our community.

Southern Wild Distillery owners have said they are willing to put aside their regular manufacturing for 6 months, and use all hands on deck to create hand sanitiser instead. However, they will need the support of the State Government to continue.

Listen as Grant Hurst, co-owner of Southern Wild Distillery, joins Aaron Stevens to discuss the change, and the incredibly high demand for hand sanitiser here in Tassie.
