Ramsbury appoints new GM
UK-based Ramsbury Brewing & Distilling Company has appointed former Chivas Brothers’ distillery manager Nikolas Fordham as its new general manager.
Industry veteran Fordham joins the company with more than 10 years of industry experience, having previously held the position of distillery manager at Chivas Brothers, and head of operations at both Tarquin’s Gin and The Bombay Spirits Company.
His new role at the company will have him overseeing the operations of the Ramsbury Estate, located in Wiltshire, England.
Fordham commented: “I’m thrilled to be appointed to general manager of Ramsbury Brewing & Distilling Company. Operating a true grain to glass approach, every element is harvested from the Ramsbury Estate, from planting and growing the trees that fuel our biomass boiler to harvesting the Horatio and Spotlight wheat, all on a single field.
“I feel excited to join the family and look forward to the adventure ahead, as we take the sustainable brand from strength to strength, heroing our single estate approach whilst sowing, growing and distilling new and exciting products our customers will love.”
Alistair Ewing, group manager of Ramsbury Brewing & Distilling Company, added: “We are delighted to welcome Nikolas into the fold at Ramsbury. He joins with a wealth of industry knowledge and experience at leading brands where he was instrumental to their growth and success.
“We have big ambitions at Ramsbury Brewing & Distilling Company and know he will help propel us to new heights as we continue to build our operations in the UK ahead of some very exciting plans later this year.”
