In response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, London’s first ever Rum Distillery, Taxi Spirit Co. has launched a new line of Hand Sanitiser using the approved W.H.O version formula 1, in an effort to aid public demand and protection against the highly contagious virus.
Cabby’s Hand Rub can now be purchased from the Taxi Spirit Co.’s dedicated online shop.
The company has also committed a percentage from the sales of the sanitiser to a number of NHS charities, and will be donating free batches to local hospitals, charities, businesses and other key workers in need of urgent supplies.
Moses Odong, Founder and Director of Taxi Spirit Co. enthused: “We’re seeing that in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis, it is having far-reaching consequences beyond just the spread of the disease and the efforts to quarantine it.
“As the pandemic has continued to spread around the country and worldwide, concerns have shifted, and businesses are adapting in an effort to fight this.
“Given the nature of our business, we’re in a position to help the public and healthcare service as there is a shortage of sufficient PPE including Hand Sanitisation.”
Launched in 2018 by Odong, Taxi Spirit Co. is known for producing its signature, award-winning and currently London’s only premium white rum, CABBY’S RUM.
But now, in part due to the UK’s relaxation on the restrictions of the production of sanitiser, the company located in capital’s Mile End, has seen its small batch distillery down tools on its usual production of rum and gin, to repurpose its warehouse and diversify its business offering during this challenging period of the pandemic.
Since being established the company has been awarded Outstanding Gold and Silver and Bronze awards at the Oscars of spirit industry – International Wine and Spirits Competition, San Francisco World Spirits Competition, The Spirit Business and The Great Taste Award for their popular range of Rum and Gin.
