COVID-19 UPDATE

THE OXFORD ARTISAN DISTILLERY and COVID-19

13th April 2021

It is with great delight that we will reopen our open air bar this Friday, 16th April 2021. For more information and our opening hours, please click here.

From Friday 21st May (subject to any further government guidance) we will be reopening our tours. We are very confident we have all the necessary measures in place and what we all love about our Distillery will continue – friendly, knowledgeable staff, a fun, relaxed atmosphere and, of course, great tasting spirits. Tours can be booked here.

Throughout lockdown we have prioritised the safety of our team above all else by following the latest UK government advice and best practices. Now, finally (we’re sure we’re not the only ones looking forward to a visit to a bar!), we are reopening and taking every measure to keep you, and us, safe.

We take cleanliness at the distillery very seriously and can assure you that:

  • The entire team, including delivery drivers, wash their hands regularly, using hand sanitiser where running water is not available
  • Hand sanitiser is available at multiple points around the distillery
  • All staff follow the social distancing guidelines at all times
  • We are washing surfaces regularly, including doors handles several times a day
  • Any staff showing symptoms of Covid-19 will immediately self-isolate

DELIVERY

Your favourite spirits can be ordered online and delivered to your doorstep for free across the UK mainland. At the moment delivery times are slightly extended and your purchase should arrive within three to four working days.

If you live locally you may find that we deliver your order personally within two working days.

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.


TOURS

Subject to government guidance, we will be running our Distillery tours from Friday 21st May, initially for a maximum of 6 people per tour and with two tours per day. Please see our Tours page [link] for more information and to book. We will allow a maximum of 3 groups per tour (groups could be a household or social bubble, up to a maximum of 6 people per tour in total).

If you have a ticket for a postponed tour and would like to rebook, please contact us via email.

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

  • 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 covering

Please do not hesitate to email or call us if you have any questions about a pre-booked tour or a new booking. We can’t wait to get started.

Please note we have suspended our minibus pickup and will reintroduce this service when we feel it is safe to do so.
