    What to Expect
    • You will be greeted with a gin and tonic, with refills available throughout the tour
    • Tour starts at 15.00 on a Saturday in the Long Room with an introduction to The Oxford Artisan Distillery (TOAD), we cover our journey to launch in detail and what makes us a unique grain-to-glass distillery. We will introduce our exclusive populations of heritage grain.
    • We visit the Old Threshing Barn to hear the history of the site and see our whiskey casks.
    • Next we visit the Lab where you are taken through the gin story, botanicals and product creation.
    • This is followed by the New Barn/ Distillery where we take you through our grain to bottle process and you get to see our unique stills Nautilus and Nemo.
    • Finally you finish back in the Long Room for a guided tasting of our spirits including some products not yet launched.

    The tour is through a working distillery - so each day you will see and smell different parts of the process in action. The tour is conducting by one of the team (not a tour guide) so each person can give you a unique insight to the set up and running of a grain to glass distillery.

    The tour lasts between 45 minutes and 1 hour
