While Bonnie Castle has served Dark Islands Spirits hand crafted cocktails to bar and restaurant guests for years, visitors can now find a new, HIGHLY DEMANDED Dark Island product with their bathroom amenities: hand sanitizer.

While travel has been significantly reduced in the 1000 Islands area and beyond, the
management team at Bonnie Castle has remained busy supporting guests and seeking ways
to keep them and employees as safe as possible.

Though the property has continued toexceed mandatory sanitary conditions throughout, General Manager, Mike Nadeau and Sr.Sales and Marketing Manager, Adam Taylor, recently took it a step further and orderedindividual bottles of hand sanitizer from their neighbor and local distiller, Dark Island Spirits, making them the first hotel in the area to take on the additional expense for their guests.

“It’s always been important to us to have craft cocktails and beers from our local distilleries
and breweries, so it was a no-brainer to continue our support while providing a critically
important amenity for our guests and team members too.” Nadeau emphasized; “we know
our traveling guests will most likely not find what they need at local convenience stores, so
we’re going to make every effort to provide a safe and welcoming environment while staying
with us.”

Dark Island recently shifted production of their spirits to full strength, 160 Proof hand
sanitizers with Glycerin and Hydrogen Peroxide for both Virus and Bacteria protection at a
time when the community was without many options. Since the recent production they have
also supplied first responders and government entities with the sanitizers and continue to
work tirelessly to keep up with demand.

The hand sanitizers have been a perfect complement to Bonnie Castle’s stance on ensuring
guest safety while thinking outside the box to also provide a warm and relaxed experience.
And while other properties understandably decided to stop taking reservations at this time,
Bonnie Castle opted to remain available as a resource for those needing accommodations in
the less dense 1000 Islands area.

“There’s no denying this is a challenging time for our industry, however we made the
decision early on to help our guests and the community find positives through it all.”, Mr.
Taylor noted, “for instance, we’re fortunate to be around the corner from amazing state
parks, and we’ll gladly point guests to our favorite trails. Our local, family owned restaurants
and breweries are still serving great food and bottling excellent beer; and we’re encouraging
our guests to take advantage of those while supporting local businesses. We’ve accepted the responsibility to safely provide some semblance of normalcy while guests are staying with us. The environment is continuing to change and fortunately we’re in a position to pivot and adapt on the spot whereas some larger brands can not.”

Nadeau and Taylor are confident these items are what guests will remember for years to come and will be important factors when travel eventually picks back up to the area.
Bonnie Castle is also supporting the community with specials rates now through April 30th to assist those needing accommodations in the 1000 Islands area. While not all onsite activities are open to ensure social distancing and guest safety, the Bonnie Castle Operations team is prepared to help guests make the most of their stay.
