COVID-19 UPDATE

THE OXFORD ARTISAN DISTILLERY and COVID-19

As the world remains in a state of flux, The Oxford Artisan Distillery is cautiously delighted to be open and continues to follow all Covid guidelines. We are open for tours and to visit our Distillery shop but please note our outdoor drinking area has now closed for winter.
Of course things are a little different from the old days but what we love about our Distillery continues – friendly, knowledgeable staff, a fun, relaxed atmosphere and, of course, great tasting spirits.

Throughout lockdown we have prioritised the safety of our team above all else by following the latest UK government advice and best practices. We are continuing to take every measure to keep you, and us, safe.


TOURS

Our Distillery tours are fully Covid-compliant and run on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday each week, with a maximum of 6 guests per tour. Tickets are booked in pairs to allow a maximum of 3 groups in any tour.

Our tours run at the following times:
Thursday: 18.00
Friday: 18.00
Saturday: 11.00, 12.00, 13.00, 14.00, 15.00
Sunday: 14.00, 16.00

You can book your tickets here. If you have a ticket for a postponed tour and would like to rebook please contact us via email tours@theoxfordartisandistillery.com.

We take cleanliness at the distillery very seriously and can assure you that our Covid-compliant procedures and cleaning processes are designed to ensure both visitor and staff safety.

  • All guests will have their temperature checked and a safety briefing on arrival (so we can concentrate on the fun stuff thereafter!) and must wear a mask
  • The tour has been completely redesigned around guest safety, including social distancing, marked standing spots and hand sanitiser available at multiple points on the route
  • The Distillery is sanitised between every tour and all guides wear a face screen

Please do not hesitate to email or call us on 01865 767918 if you have any questions about a pre-booked tour or a new booking.

Please note we have suspended our minibus pickup and will not reintroduce this service until we feel it is safe to do so.


THE SHOP

Our Distillery shop is open for walk in customers and for click and collect orders. We offer our full range of spirits including special editions and a range of local craft beer.

OUR OPEN AIR BAR

Our open air bar has now closed for the winter season. We look forward to welcoming you back for a G&T in 2021.


DELIVERY

We continue to deliver your favourite spirits to your doorstep for free across the UK mainland. Your purchase will always arrive within three to four working days, but usually within two.

If you live locally you may find that we deliver your order personally. Orders purchased on our website will be left on your doorstep, adhering strictly to social distancing guidelines. We ask you to stay at least 2 metres away from our delivery driver.


HAND SANITISER

The Oxford Artisan Distillery continues to make hand sanitiser for Oxfordshire care homes, hospitals and the local community. We distribute sanitiser for free to individuals in need, distribute at cost to local charitable organisations and for a small fee to commercial organisations. As a small local distillery we are limited in how much we can do but with your support we can do more - please visit our gofundme page to find out more.

Our hand rub gel (sanitiser) follows the World Health Organisation’s recommended formulation of alcohol. All donations will be used to produce more hand sanitiser for those who need it most during the COVID-19 outbreak.

If you are a local organisation in need, please email info@theoxfordartisandistillery.com.


AND FINALLY

Thank you for all your support throughout these tricky times - we have been honoured by your support and for being part of this community.
