Our Story

 
 

From field to bottle in the heart of Wiltshire

 

Our Philosophy

AT RAMSBURY WE are firstly farmers and we use our deep-rooted understanding that the more we care for the landscape around us, the more it will give us. Situated amongst the 19,000 acres of land on the Ramsbury estate is our distillery, with the milling shed sat just next door. Besides that sits our own orchard and lake. Behind, fields of our Horatio wheat grow, which will be harvested on precisely the day that is best because as farmers, we know the land and the crop as well as we know how to make a fine gin.

Single Estate

ANYONE can make a decent gin, but for it to be brilliant, it has to be a Single Estate. We select only the finest Horatio wheat from our fields. We know exactly in which field the wheat has grown, when it was sown and precisely when it was harvested. Our copper stills use heat generated by a biomass boiler fed by our own sustainable woodland, and once the distilling is complete,  the spent grains are fed to the animals on the farms.  The waste water is cleaned by a wildlife friendly reed bed system which then feeds into our lake. Our defining botanical, quince, grows in the orchard next to this lake. By keeping every part of the process within the estate, we not only reduce our environmental footprint, but by nurturing the land that we use around us we can continue to distil the finest gin and vodka for years to come. 

 

 

We try to do things properly, because that’s the way it should be done.

Our Gin
 

THE PRECISE RECIPE for Ramsbury Gin is a well-kept secret, only a few people know it. And it will remain that way. However, the basis of our gin is our own wheat vodka. In the distillation process we use water from our own source, Horatio wheat and the classic ingredients of a genuine London Dry Gin –Juniper, Coriander, Angelica, Orris, Liquorice, Lemon, Orange and Cinnamon. In order to give our gin a unique touch, we also throw in some fruit and peel from the exquisite quince which we grow here at Ramsbury.

 
Our Land
 

THE RIVER KENNET, a tributary of the Thames, winds its way through the valley. The region has been inhabited for as long as the isles themselves. Stonehenge is just next door and the area used to be the royal hunting grounds. Our estate stretches across 19,600 acres of chalk downlands. Because the soil is rich in chalk it preserves moisture better than other soil, which offers perfect conditions if managed in the right way. In short, Ramsbury is quite simply a dream for us distillers.
