Ramsbury has got your back this festive season. It’s giving you MANY epic prizes but first up is a duo of its super-sustainable spirits, so not only can you enjoy the premium taste but you can feel good about drinking it too. Result.
If your 2020 resolution is to be more sustainable then you can pat yourself on the back for drinking Ramsbury. First up the Ramsbury Estate distillery is nestled down in Wiltshire and when it comes to field-to-glass spirits it doesn’t get better than this. The distillery uses heat generated by Ramsbury’s own sustainable woodland. Livestock are fed spent wheat and grains from the distillery, lucky guys. Waste water is cleaned by wildfire friendly reed bed systems. Boom. They’ve nailed this.
Fancy having a nose around the distillery for yourself? Your Christmas wish has been answered. The second part of the prize lets you do just that. Grab your cocktail loving mate / date and forget about those January blues ‘cos you’ll not only be staying at The Bell -their charmingly rustic former coaching inn - you’ll also get an accompanying tour of the Estate and distillery plus dinner and drinks.
Did someone say spirit-based staycation surrounded by picturesque scenery? We almost wanted to keep this one to ourselves.
What’s more, you can win a cocktail hamper containing a bottle of Ramsbury Vodka, a bottle of Ramsbury Gin, a ram’s head bar spoon and two Ramsbury highball glasses. PHEW. Forget Santa - these guys know how to do Christmas presents!
What will BarChick be serving guests this Christmas? This smooth, creamy and nowhere-near-as-sweet-as-you’re-expecting English Cream Liqueur. Best of all you can blitz up a batch and it keeps for 2 weeks so none of that spending all night shaking up drinks FOMO. This is how it's done:
