Ramsbury. The distillery is situated amongst the 19,000 acres of land on the Ramsbury estate. The milling shed is just next door. Besides that sits their own orchard and lake. Behind, fields of Horatio wheat grow, which will be harvested on precisely the day that is best because as farmers, they know the land and the crop as well as how to make a fine gin.
Anyone can make a decent gin, but for it to be brilliant, it has to be a Single Estate. Only the finest Horatio wheat is selected from their fields. The copper stills use heat generated by a biomass boiler fed by their own sustainable woodland. 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 their lake. The defining botanical, quince, grows in the orchard next to this lake. By keeping every part of the process within the estate, they not only reduce their environmental footprint, but by nurturing the land around them, can continue to distill the finest gin and vodka for years to come.
