DISTILLERY TOURS

Discover Artisan Distilling

We welcome visitors to the distillery for a behind-the scenes-experience where you can discover the principles of our approach to distilling and follow our production processes which make our craft spirits so special.

You’ll get the opportunity to really see what goes into our spirits, everything is very visible and it’s a perfect environment to truly understand grain-to-glass craft distilling.

STANDARD TOUR

45 MINUTES

You’ll be shown how we make our vodka, gin, absinthe and rye whisky following every step of the journey from seed to still - and into the bottle. This close you’ll gain a real appreciation of the extra mile we go to make The Oxford Artisan Distillery a true craft distillery. We will finish with an opportunity to ask questions and taste a selection of our spirits.

Our tours are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to relaunch in July when we will be operating a reduced tour schedule with small groups of 6.

Please see here for more information.

FOUNDER'S TOUR

90 MINUTES

Hosted by one of our three founders this tour gives a unique insight into our journey from conception all the way to bottle! We will spend time on how we source our ingredients and the work that goes into making our vodka, gin, absinthe and rye whiskey. After this in-depth tour, we will host an extended tasting session, taking you through all our different spirits and finishing with a large gin and tonic.

Our Founders Tour is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to launch Founders Tours for family and household groups in August.

OUR STILLS

Our beautiful riveted copper stills were built in conjunction with Paul Pridham, England’s last great steam engine boiler-maker. Taking inspiration from Jules Verne, we designed our 2,200 litre central still, Nautilus, as well as its 500-litre partner, Nemo – allowing us all the flexibility we need to experiment and refine.

HOW TO FIND US

Situated in Oxford’s South park, the distillery is a pleasant 30 minute walk from Oxford city centre, great views of the city do come with a price so prepare for some uphill walking! If you are arriving by train to Oxford a taxi will take you about 10 minutes depending on traffic conditions.

BY BUS

Take any of the 4 buses (4, 4A, 4B, 4C) towards Wood Farm and get off at the Warneford Hospital stop. From there, The Oxford Artisan Distillery is just a short 300 metres walk away.

Alternatively, any bus to Oxford Brooke’s University will serve you well. We are a five-minute walk away from the campus.

BY CAR

We have a small amount of parking space available. If you are coming from out of town we recommend using the Thornhill Park & Ride, get off the Oxford Brooke’s University stop.
