Coronavirus and Henstone Distillery

Coronavirus – COVID-19

Coronavirus - NHS poster
Until we are instructed otherwise, or we feel the need to act, Henstone Distillery will remain open. This includes our production, onsite shop/bar and our tours. We will, of course, follow official guidelines and are currently adhering to the official UK Government advice which can be found here and the NHS guidance which can be found here
In summary the UK Government guidance states:
This advice is for people with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), including those with a diagnosis of coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, who must remain at home until they are well.
The main messages are:

  • if you have symptoms of coronavirus infection (COVID-19), however mild, do not leave your home for 7 days from when your symptoms started (see ending isolation section for more information);
  • this action will help protect others in your community while you are infectious;
  • plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure you can successfully stay at home;
  • ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home;
  • stay at least 2 metres (about 3 steps) away from other people in your home whenever possible;
  • sleep alone, if possible;
  • wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser;
  • stay away from vulnerable individuals, such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions, as much as possible;
  • you do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days, contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.

If you don’t feel you can make it to our on-site shop or any of the other outlets stocking us, there are many online outlets stocking our products – check our WHERE TO BUY page for details.
