The ASSC has teamed up with Aviemore based gin-maker, Kinrara Distillery, to help make sure members can keep themselves and their guests safe as the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and life and business returns to normal.
As a membership organisation made up of innovative, dynamic, and entrepreneurial small businesses, the ASSC is delighted to partner with Kinrara who will be providing their globally recognised hand sanitiser to ASSC members.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Kinrara Distillery lost nearly all of its trade through pubs, bars, restaurants and independent retailers.
Fortunately, they were able to repurpose the distillery into the production of World Health Organisation recipe hand sanitiser.
Kinrara are now encouraging shops and businesses to make sure that they can get back to business safely with their 80 percent alcohol hand sanitiser.
And, of course, enjoy a gin and tonic or two…
While the market is currently flooded with larger firms making hand sanitiser with a reduced alcohol content, Kinrara’s product is 80 percent alcohol (as recommended by WHO) and is therefore ideal for use in ASSC members’ properties.
Kinrara are a small Scottish business and are keen to support other small Scottish businesses.
They make their gin and hand sanitiser just outside Aviemore in the Cairngorm National Park and can ship anywhere in the UK.
It has never been more important that Scottish businesses be able to rely on each other and so we’re delighted to welcome this new relationship which will benefit both organisations.
ASSC Chief Executive, Fiona Campbell, said:
“Scottish self-caterers appreciate the importance of supporting small Scottish businesses and so the opportunity to partner with a great company like Kinrara was something we could not pass up.
“In addition to their delicious gin, Kinrara also make a brilliant hand sanitiser product that our members will be proud to stock in their properties.
“The safety and security of our guests and members is of paramount importance to us and we’re delighted to be working with the great guys at Kinrara to reassure everyone involved of our commitment to this.”
Kinrara Distillery Commercial Manager, Luke Fenton, said:
“We were proud to turn the majority of our commercial operation over to the production of much-needed hand sanitiser for an extended period during the COVID-19 pandemic; we felt that we were doing our duty.
“Now, as Scotland’s economy continues to reopen, we’re delighted to offer ASSC members this special offer, to help reduce their costs and make sure that everyone stays safe as we move into the next stage of the recovery.
“We encourage ASSC members to take us up on this offer and perhaps even buy a bottle or two of gin; while hand sanitiser is great at keeping your hands clean, it’s not much use over ice with tonic – we’ve got other products that are perfect for that.”
