OXFORD RYE WHISKY
70 CL | 50% ABV
Oxford Rye Whisky is produced from unique populations of heritage grain, farmed sustainably without the use of agri-chemicals. Restoring the land and supporting biodiversity with every bottle.
The recipe of mixed populations of heritage grains is 90% Maslin (rye and wheat grown together) and 10% malted barley. This whisky is double-distilled in both pot and column stills and laid down in American oak casks and a selection of ex-wine casks. The flavour of the heritage grain shines through: a buttery-pastry character with notes of fruit, spice and nut; whilst chocolate and spices pair with herbal and savoury notes leading to a toasted finish.
With the warmer and drier Spring and Summer seasons in 2018, yields were slightly lower compared to 2017. Harvest started earlier and the ripening season was shorter, delivering more of a herbal character to the whisky.
