Ramsbury gin makers have created a virtual tip jar to help struggling bars and pubs.

They have launched Ramsbury & Friends to enable customers to buy drinks vouchers for their local bar or pub through a virtual tip jar.

The company, Ramsbury Single Estate Spirits will match every pound spent as a tip for the venue.

With the total donation going straight to the venue, they hope the initiative will help to ease the current pressure on drinkers’ much-loved bars.

If a favourite bar is not featured, customers can also nominate their choice by contacting friends@ramsbury.com

Mikul Kalyan, Global Brand Ambassador at Ramsbury Single Estate Spirits says: “It’s a truly unprecedented time that we’re living in and it can be hard to know how to help. We launched this to pledge our support and give them something to look forward with friends and loved ones, once we return to normality.”
