    What to Expect
    • Tour starts at 13.00 in the Long Room with an introduction to The Oxford Artisan Distillery (TOAD), we cover our journey to launch 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 two gins and vodka.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

    Took the afternoon tour on 25 July 2019. The history and process was superbly presented by our guide, Sarah. The operation is quite small, but with the enthusiasm shown by all staff, it must grow and I look forward to the new products being developed....More

    Slightly disconcerting when you first arrive - like stepping back in time. No standard tourist stuff - just like driving into a farmyard. But dont let that put you off - within minutes six of us were sat down with Sarah hearing about how Toad...More

    Had an excellent tour (helps that there were only 4 of us)! We had the place almost to ourselves while our guide, much like the history of TOAD, was in no hurry, and was willing to entertain all our questions (wish I could remember her...More
