Distillers making hand sanitiser or providing ethanol

This page contains details of companies who are manufacturing hand sanitiser or ethanol.

Distillers are keen to provide supplies of hand sanitiser or bulk ethanol to organisations where needed and where possible: this page lists companies offering to supply hand sanitiser or ethanol. Some companies are already committed to producing hand sanitiser or are supplying ethanol to users, and may therefore not appear on this page.

This information is to connect supply with those organisations in need.

If you would like to be listed here, please complete our online portal.

Please note that supplies of ethanol are subject to HMRC control.

It is the responsibility of those producing hand sanitiser products to ensure it is safe and effective to use and that all other regulatory requirements have been met before supplying it for public use. World Health Organisation formulation 1 for hand rub requires the final product to have a final ethanol concentration of 80%; other specifications may have different final concentration levels.
