Grenada distilleries switch to producing sanitizing solution

Several distillers on Grenada have stepped up to do their part during the coronavirus pandemic by producing and distributing hand sanitizers for medical facilities, police stations, assisted living homes, prisons, supermarkets, pharmacies and the Grenada Bus Association.

Grenada Distilleries Limited, parent company of the island’s Clark Court rum, began with the production of 1,200 cases of sanitizing solution, priced at $9 per bottle.

Blue Light Gin, headquartered at La Phare Bleu resort, halted production of the island’s only microdistillery of handcrafted gin to produce aloe-infused hand sanitizers, selling for $9 a bottle.

And the family-owned Westerhall Estate stopped production of its rum for the first time since 1776 to start hand sanitizer production, with bottles priced from $1.85 to $12.95.

The product will become a permanent fixture on the distiller’s product line.
