It’s fair to say we are in the middle of a health crisis.
Our lives as we knew them have changed. Many folks have died and many more will. And that is heartbreaking.
We have big challenges and changes ahead and we must adapt accordingly to safeguard our own health and that of the vulnerable. So more do not die un-necessarily.
With bars, clubs and restaurants closing, the on-trade side of my business has now stopped. It hurts. It’s financially a very scary time. But for me, it was the right call.
Gin seems trivial in the middle of all this. But it’s what I do for a living, along with produce other drinks. And until I’m told not to, I will continue to do that. As long as you good folks are ordering that is!
Yes, our lives have changed and many will be spending the next 6 to 12 weeks in their homes for most of the day. If those folks fancy a G&T and a Steel River one at that, I will service them.
I am continuing to deliver in the local area (TS & DL) and use DPD for deliveries outside of those postcodes. That’s how we will continue unless told not to.
So, it’s normal service when it comes to ordering your gin. Normal service for us here making it, bottling it, and delivering it. And hopefully it’s normal service for you good folks, enjoying it.
But, for all this to continue, let’s all be sensible and considerate and take the advice. Self distancing, self isolation, self awareness. And we will hopefully be through the worst of it soon enough.
Take care and I hope you all come through unscathed and thank you as always for your continued support for Steel River Drinks.
KEEP CALM – BE NICE – DRINK GIN
