Wiltshire artisan spirits brand, Ramsbury, has entered into its biggest partnership to-date, after signing an agreement with the Hurlingham Polo Association to become the Official Spirit Partner of the Flannels England Polo Team.
The partnership involves Ramsbury supporting the national Polo team by providing Ramsbury Gin and Vodka at the official England test matches via the general bar on the day, during the sit-down meals and in the goody bags given out in the presentations to the teams. VIP guests attending the matches will also be able to drink Ramsbury spirits in the hospitality areas.
Will Thompson, Head of Sales and Marketing at Ramsbury Distillery said: “We are delighted to be named as the Official Spirit Partner of the England Polo team, it signifies an exciting time for the Ramsbury Distillery. This partnership is a perfect fit for us, the Hurlingham Polo Association is renowned for representing prestigious British Polo events that reflect genuine quality, this perfectly echoes the values we have as a premium spirits brand.
Our single estate vodka and gin are examples of true British craftsmanship – they are unique and have the perfect combination of ingredients and skill – just like the English Polo Team!”
David Woodd, chief executive of the Hurlingham Polo Association remarked: “It’s great to have Ramsbury Distillery on board. As a brand they encapsulate everything that is good about England, as our Flannels England team does. As our official spirit partner they bring an exciting dynamic to what is an established heritage and the prospect of working with Ramsbury this year is something the whole England camp is looking forward too. It tastes pretty good too!”
Ramsbury Distillery can be found at two of England’s test matches, the Gloucestershire Festival of Polo held at the Beaufort Polo Club on Saturday 9thJune, and the high profiled sporting event – The International Day – at the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club on Saturday 28thJuly.
