Shane Warne stops gin production and makes hand sanitisers

Former Australian legend Shane Warne has halted production of gin at a distillery he co-owns to make medical-grade hand sanitiser for hospitals in these “challenging times” due to the coronavirus outbreak. The leg-spinner responded to Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s plea for companies to help wherever they can during the crisis. “This is a challenging time for Australians and we all need to do what we can to help our healthcare system combat this disease and save lives,” Warne said on his Instagram page.

“I am happy SevenZeroEight has the ability to make this shift and encourage others to do the same.”

“So proud of all the team @708gin as this is awesome two prominent surgeons with an agreement in place to supply two Western Australian hospitals with hand sanitiser at cost.

The company halted gin production earlier this week and is now pumping out 70-percent alcohol hand sanitiser indefinitely.

It follows a similar move by a distillery in Ireland, with hand sanitiser in short supply in many countries battling the virus.

Australia has so far seen more than 750 confirmed cases of the coronavirus, with seven deaths from the disease.
