Check out The 101 Brewhouse + Distillery

About Us

Canadian Sanitizer is a project of Coast Distillery Ltd., a small distillery located in Gibsons, on BC's beautiful Sunshine Coast – though locals know us better as The 101 Brewhouse + Distillery. We make artisanal spirits, craft beer, and now, premium hand sanitizer.


In the spring of 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic gathered urgency, hand sanitizer was suddenly in unprecedented demand as Canadians adjusted to the new reality of living in a public health emergency. Meanwhile, our restaurant had been forced to close to support social distancing, and our spirits and beer production had plummeted. We knew it was time for us to shift gears.

We have put our whole team behind our effort to produce a high-quality, highly effective, yet also highly affordable hand sanitizer. We have worked tirelessly to supply community groups, hospitals, healthcare workers, businesses, and ordinary families in and around our community. Now, though Canadian Sanitizer, we are helping people from coast to coast access our products easily and safely.


The COVID-19 pandemic has brought out the best in our communities. If you are here to buy sanitizer to donate to community groups, health workers, or people in need, make sure to choose the Helping Hands sanitizer in the shop. For every bottle you purchase we’ll donate a bottle to Coastal Crisis Outreach, a group of people helping people in our home community of Gibsons, BC.
