Ramsbury Vodka

The story of Ramsbury Single Estate Vodka. From raw to pure.

FIRST WE WERE FARMERS

 

Our distillery is located just outside the village of Ramsbury in Wiltshire. Each year we select a single field on the estate to harvest and supply the distillery with enough wheat for a full year’s production. Grown in an ancient landscape recognised as an agricultural centre dating back to Neolithic times, we pride ourselves on knowing that it is of the highest quality English wheat.

We have total control over the process and can tell you which field grew the wheat in any particular bottle, in fact it’s on the front of the bottle. We have selected Horatio as the variety of wheat we distil with, we found it gave the best flavour when combined with our state of the art distillery.

 

BREWERS THEN DISTILLERS

 

Before making Vodka we brewed beer, something we have been perfecting since 2004. We continue to build on our reputation as producers of some of the best and most award winning beers in the region. If you can make good beer you can make excellent spirits. Fact. This is because a large amount of flavour found in the final spirit is created during the mashing, brewing and fermenting stages of production, techniques that we have refined over the many years of making beer.

TRUE ENGLISH CRAFTSMANSHIP

 

We believe that to make great Vodka you need to start with the very best ingredients. Only the best wheat is selected and we combine that with water from our own source. Nothing else. Our Vodka is distilled through a 46 plate column still, which means we can distil ours to an extremely high level of purity. If you ask us how long it takes to make a bottle of Ramsbury Vodka we will answer with either 1 year to grow the wheat, 3 days to distil, 4 days of brewing or 30 years to grow our trees. Each one is just as integral to the process as the other.

 

PART OF A BIGGER PICTURE

 

As an integrated estate our distillery sits within a much wider eco-system. The heat used to distil our spirit is generated by a biomass boiler fed by trees from our own forest. The waste water is filtered through a reed bed system which creates an incredible habitat for wildlife. Our livestock are fed the bi-products from our brewery and distillery.

 

THE NATURE OF OUR VODKA

 

Complex and smooth. Ramsbury Vodka has layers of caramel, vanilla and cocoa. With more flavour than traditional Vodka it’s perfect over ice and makes a stunning martini.
