Hand Sanitiser Production

As a reaction to the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, in April Taplin & Mageean distillery switched part of its production capacity to the manufacture of WHO approved 80% alcohol hand sanitiser.

Our original push was to support our local Dales-based NHS and front line workers, and we have been providing the sanitiser free of charge to these critical workers ever since and will continue to do so into the future.

It is a weird transition for all of us in the distillery, where most of out time is spent focussed on the creation of subtle and nuanced gin recipes that have seen us win awards all over the world. But there are times when something seems instinctively to be the right thing to do, and we have been humbled by the huge out pouring of positivity towards us for this move.

From our perspective it is the very least we can do as we see the amazing work our doctors, nurses, and carers do to protect us all in these troubling time.

Our sanitiser is also available for all individuals and companies as we begin to navigate a route out of lockdown. We provide it in 250 ml bottles, a 1000 ml refill pouch, and 5 and 25 litre Jerry Cans. It can be accessed on-line at, or you can contact us direct on 07712 891070 if you want to discuss trade prices and bulk purchase.

Taplin & Mageean is based in heart of the Yorkshire Dales, and we are pleased to be playing our part to support our community. As we all pull together, we will beat this virus and look forward to happier times ahead.

We also produce ultra-premium craft gins, which are the ideal tipple for the sunny summer days ahead. In one way or another, we look forward to serving you in the future.
