A CELEBRATION OF OUR SIGNATURE GRAIN

At the very heart of our spirits is the seed we plant and the grain that we grow, so it isn’t January at The Oxford Artisan Distillery, it’s #JANURYE; a month of celebrating the heritage rye that make our spirits taste so damn good whilst proudly regenerating the soil health and supporting biodiversity. Find out more about our farming, and how it supports our environment here, see how our fields progress through the seasons and bring Janurye home with our brand new cocktail recipes.

In celebration of #JANURYE and our signature grain, we will be offering a free tasting glass with every purchase of a full size 70cl spirit, including our Oxford Rye Whisky, Oxford Rye Dry Gin, multi-award-winning Oxford Rye Vodka and Oxford Rye spirit. Your free tasting glass will be automatically added at checkout so shop as normal and all you have to do is look out for it in your delivery.

The most important part, without a doubt, is that the heritage rye base makes really excellent tasting spirits, and to that end Phil Sanders, our Head of Bar, has created some fantastic out-of-the-ordinary serve ideas to see you through this January.

Be inspired and share your favourite Oxford Rye recipes with us using the hashtag #JANURYE to make sure we see.
