Cape Byron Distillery

Brookie's Hand & Surface Sanitiser

Enriched with Natural Lime & Gin Botanicals

Hand & Surface Sanitiser from the team at Brookie’s Gin, a critical product for the community.

We are adapting to meet the overwhelming demand in the current COVID-19 climate by producing a high quality, alcohol-based, natural sanitiser, scented with our signature rainforest gin & lime.

We are extremely proud to be in a position to produce this product to assist with the current need for personal hygiene, health and safety of our community and will be doing everything we can to meet the demand. ~ Eddie Brook, Co-Founder & Distiller

The sanitiser was developed by Pamela Brook B.D. Sc MBA (Co-founder of Brookfarm & Cape Byron Distillery) using all-natural ingredients including; 70% Ethanol, by-products of the production of Brookie’s Gin, UV & charcoal filtered Mt Warning Spring Water, Vegetable Glycerine, Aloe Vera & Citrus oil. Brookie’s Hand & Surface sanitiser is bottled at 70% volume by volume ethanol, above the minimum recommended alcohol strength for sanitiser, according to the CDC and medical professionals.

The overwhelming need for sanitiser from the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular in the medical services industry has inspired the distillery to develop a product for the community. The distillery has access to high proof ethanol, essential for creating hand and surface sanitiser and the production of this product means that there will be consistent employment for the Brookie’s team given the downturn in gin sales as a result of the closure of the cellar door and all hospitality venues around Australia.

We’ve reached out to the local medical community to see if there was interest and demand for the sanitiser and have since been inundated with requests.

We will be supplying larger containers of sanitiser to the local medical professions, doctors, hospitals and care workers. We are prioritising supply to many health organisations within the local community and will be initially releasing our first batch to some of our current Brookie’s Gin retailers and other local businesses in the Northern Rivers. We understand the urgent need in the community, and we will be doing all we can to meet this demand during these testing times. ~ Eddie Brook

The sanitiser is available in 500ml recyclable bottles online via our website, local retailers and pharmacies.
