Since the arrival of coronavirus in the UK, people have been flocking to shops to buy hand sanitiser, leading to many shops running out.

Staff at a Bristol gin distillery decided to start making their own after they couldn't find any in shops.

The team at Psychopomp & Circumstance Distillery in Kingsdown are using gin botanicals and filling glass bottles with the product.

They are only asking for donations which will all go to Bristol Children's Hospital.

People are encouraged to pop into their store on St Michaels Hill, or add it to their order online.

Liam Hirt, co-founder of Psychopomp & Circumstance Distillery said, “The team wanted some hand sanitiser and everywhere was sold out so we decided to made some!"

Danny Walker co-founder of Psychopomp & Circumstance Distillery continued "If you need some let us know and we can add it to your order or if your local pop into the distillery.

"We have a few glass bottles, but we would encourage people to bring their own spray/pump bottles if you can as we don’t want to add to the plastic problem.”
