The Ramsbury Distillery, situated on a lush 19,000-acre estate is a distillery that feels like it has been taken right out of a dream. Situated amongst fields, with a lake and an orchard as a part of the estate, the distillery is in the midst of scenic views and beautiful surroundings. Practising environmentally conscious farming, the distillery uses the perfect blend of tradition and innovation to produce spirits with the highest quality and the lowest environmental impact.
Among their spirits are the Single Estate Gin and the Single Estate Vodka, both among the winners at the 2021 London Spirits Competition. The Ramsbury Single Estate Gin is a modern twist on the classic London Dry and includes nine botanicals. A crisp, full-bodied gin in which floral notes combined with their defining botanical, quince, gives it a moreish and sweet palate. It is the perfect base for a number of cocktails, including Ramsbury’s own creation the Kennet 75.

Their Ramsbury Single Estate Vodka is not to be left far behind. The biggest winner at the 2021 London Spirits Competition, the Ramsbury Single Estate Vodka took home the honours of Spirit of the Year, Vodka of the Year, Best in Show by Country award and the Best Spirit by Quality award for its 96-point haul. A smooth and rich vodka, crafted from the finest Horatio wheat grown on the Ramsbury Estate. The Horatio wheat’s distinctive vanilla tones round off a sweet and delicate bouquet. It is an elegant vodka with a creamy texture, tones of dried fruit, cocoa and layers of caramel followed by dark chocolate richness on the palate. The elegance is one of the reasons why the distillery’s creation, the Estate Spritz, is such a winning cocktail.
