British Columbia Distillery now making Hand Sanitizer for the COVID-19 crisis.
A Distillery in Squamish called Gillespies Fine Spirits is now on the market for $249,000. What’s so interesting about this small operation at the moment is that it has picked up as of late because they are now producing Hand Sanitizer for the COVID-19 crisis. I listed this business about two years ago and never ended up selling it because the owners decided they wanted to keep it and now just recently re-listed prior to the world shutting down. Surprisingly, it’s one of the few businesses that is going to get to thrive during this time.
Co-owner Kelly Ann Woods says the following about the most recent switch to producing Hand Sanitizer;
“We are overrun with requests. People can’t get hand sanitizer from anywhere. It is a huge business pivot. We are making it as quickly as possible !”
“The RCMP, search and rescue, paramedics, group homes. We have had requests from large organizations such as BCAA/EVO CAR SHARE
And Squamish locals who, for whatever reason have to go out and work etc….”
“We will make it for as long as is required. Even after the acute phase of this pandemic blows over, this thing isn’t just going to go away. And, chances are that people will be more germ conscious. ”
Kelly says; “We are Trying to produce 600L of the stuff over the next 3 weeks. Who knew a year ago that our award-winning spirits and bar operations would be suspended and we would find ourselves in the hand sanitizer/sanitizer spray business. ”
“We are overrun with requests. People can’t get hand sanitizer from anywhere. It is a huge business pivot. We are making it as quickly as possible”
This is a great business with a feel-good story and one of few who get to make money in this time of crisis!
