The partnership of John Ramsay & Co was formed by John Ramsay and Robert Bowman in about 1803. The business operated from a brewery in Mill Vennel until the partnership was dissolved in 1809. John eventually established a new brewery on land that he leased in St Quivox Parish, while Robert probably moved to Paisley and formed Robert Bowman & Co.
