Ramsbury Background and History
Back in 1997, the Ramsbury Estate spanned just 3,000 acres. Since then, through the accumulation of surrounding neighbouring estates such as Littlecote, the Estate now spans over 19,000 stunning acres, featuring 7,000 acres of farmland across Wiltshire, West Berkshire and North Hampshire.
Ramsbury Estate is based in Marlborough, in the stunning British countryside. Open between 9am and 5pm, the Estate offers locals and craft-beer lovers from all stretches of the UK (and beyond) the opportunity to explore the beautiful grounds, on-site brewery, and delicious, fresh farm produce that the Estate has to offer.
Of the 19,000 acres of estate, here at Ramsbury our operations work hand-in-hand to get the most out of our land and have minimal impact on the environment around us.
Back in 2004, the Estate diversified and welcomed craft brewing to the mix. Born with the aim of creating delicious craft beers with a sustainable standpoint, Ramsbury Brewery has now been in operation for nearly twenty years, taking inspiration from the beautiful surrounding Wiltshire countryside and the diverse range of plants, cattle and flavours that come with it.
Our brewery product portfolio now spans craft beers from classic craft lagers to exotic Indian pale ales, offering a delicious craft beer experience for all tastes. As an independent brewery, we pride ourselves on our sustainable practices and place our years of experience and passion for the industry in every pint we pull.
Our products include fresh meat, locally grown produce, craft beer and craft spirits: and they’re award winning. Discover our delicious fresh meat collection, our crisp Ramsbury Gold debut craft beer, and our alcohol-based sanitiser, which we began creating during the COVID-19 pandemic: transforming our distillery to help provide assistance in the face of the uncertainty, to help our wonderful local community.
