Our Story

 
 

From field to bottle in the heart of Wiltshire

 

Our Philosophy

AT RAMSBURY WE combine old-fashioned care for nature and what it gives us with cutting edge technology. We treasure generations of know-how enabling us to harvest the wheat precisely on the day when it is at its best. We mill the wheat right next to our shining copper stills and then carefully distil the spirit. To reach absolute perfection, we have chosen to bottle and label our gin by hand. Thanks to the local process and the quality of our ingredients, we are able to make a gin set apart from all others. Produced with loving care, here at Ramsbury.

Our Land

EVEN THE PLUMBER down the road could probably make a decent gin. But for it to be brilliant, you need brilliant raw material. At Ramsbury we select only the finest Horatio wheat from our best fields. We know exactly in which field the wheat has grown, we know exactly when it was sown and precisely when it was harvested. We consider this to be of utmost importance, as the fields vary in the amount of chalk, pH, the number of sun hours and different cultivation histories. At Ramsbury we believe that anything that is worth doing, is worth doing well – and we know that by crafting as soft and smooth a vodka we can create a damn good gin.

 

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 and wheat 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 Source

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.

In order to make an excellent gin, you have to be able to make an excellent vodka. Award-winning we might add.
