They are determined to do everything they can to try and help as many people as possible stay safe as founder James Watt said in a tweet: "Hand sanitiser is selling out everywhere.

"So we have started using our distillery to make Punk Sanitiser.

"We want to do all we can to help everyone through this difficult time"

This product will not be for retail sale, but will be distributed free locally to help those who need it the most.

On Tuesday the firm confirmed that its highly popular PunkAGM would be postponed.

As Mr Watt explained: "With the recent Government guidance to limit the spread of Covid-19, we are sadly postponing our 2020 PunkAGM, set to take place on April 11.

"To say we are disappointed is a huge understatement, but it was the only option available to us."
