Swan Valley distillery Harris Organic has started producing certified organic hand sanitiser using ethanol from grapes grown on the property.

Operating for 20 years distilling organic vodka, brandy and gin (along with 16 wines), Harris Organic realised they could meet the unprecedented demands for hand sanitiser by mixing up their own and making it available through their online store.

After receiving enquiries from several companies looking to purchase hospital-grade spirit, Harris Organic sought advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and secured the germ-killing recipe, which is a mixture of 80% ethanol, glycerine, hydrogen peroxide and water.

The ethanol is made predominantly from Chenin Blanc and Shiraz grapes grown on the certified organic property in Baskerville. To get to the final product, the wine is refined into spirit and distilled three times to reach ultimate purity.

It’s been a huge success, and having already sold out of their first batch within the week, they are hard at work mixing up another batch for sale through their online store and cellar door. It’s the only organic distillery in the Perth region, born in 1998 when Duncan Harris first purchased the property and started the vineyard from soil-up.

You can get your hands on their sanitiser by ordering through their online store. They will deliver anywhere throughout Perth.
