Small distillery, however a great tour. A real eye-opener in what goes on behind the scenes.

The OX Gins are fabulous. Nice to see the gins are in some pubs in Oxford too. Great touch that.

Very interesting and entertaining experience
This is a small distillery so there is not a huge amount there, but what is there is fascinating and the guide was very entertaining. Plenty of tasting going on too. Highly recommended.

Fascinating for non-gin-lovers alike - Fabulous tour
Oct 2021
Bought the tour as a present for my wife - but as a non-gin-lover, I actually found it utterly fascinating too. The back story of the historic crops, the creation of the still, and the week-to-week processes was both interesting and incredibly well told.

The tour was really good, lots of samples provided and Jane, our tour guide was very friendly and really welcoming upon arrival. She provided us with great knowledge and insight into how gin is made here which really makes us appreciate the importance of local businesses. Thank you to the staff who made our visit remeberable.

Don’t Miss This Tour!

This was of the best experiences during our visit to Oxford! VERY informative and fascinating. Our tour “guide” Edward was entertaining and knew so much about the distillery, as well as the whole process from field to bottle. Can’t say enough positive things about it! I would highly recommend this tour for those over 18. We came with our adult children (Not much for kids under 18)

Fantastic!
A group of us went to the distillery for the tour and tasting and it was absolutely outstanding! The staff are very knowledgeable and engaging - the gins, vodka and whiskey are second to none and the outside drinking area leading on to south park is the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon in Oxford!

I cannot recommend highly enough! Can’t wait to visit again!

Genuinely interesting tour run by passionate people
Aug 2021
We arranged to do this tour on a whim as we had an hour to kill before lunch in Iffley and we like gin! It is an artisan gin distillery, completely rejecting the large scale commercial approach and their passion shows through in both the tour and the products. Their story is amazing; we could have listened for hours! The tour is also generous with the tastings...! There was no hard sell in the shop - there didn't need to be, the products sell themselves! We would thoroughly recommend the tour...and the gins!

Could've catered for the designated driver and been more knowledgable
Jul 2021
The place itself is really nice, staff are friendly and my partner said the drink they produce is delicious.

However, they don't cater for the designated driver so make sure you get the bus or train. We had to drive as we were staying a fair distance away. On the other 2 distillery tours we've done elsewhere they've substituted the tasting for a mini 5cl bottle to take home. I asked on arrival but they declined, even though they sell them in the shop for only £6 or so. They even said 'we have to put the drinks in front of you' even though I just told them I was driving home, which isn't particularly professional or safe...

The tour guide was lovely, but could've done with being a bit more knowledgeable about the distilling process. She said a few times 'the distillers have told me, but I don't understand fully'. Would've been better for one of the actual distillers to give the tour as they know the process inside out.

Thanks for the helpful feedback, we have taken it on board and reviewed our policy. We now offer a free miniature of the designated driver's choice, and there's a full range, so plenty to choose from. We're sorry that you were disappointed with your experience. We pride ourselves on our knowledgeable guides and will take your comments on board. On a final note, we were very happy to hear that your partner liked our spirits! We hope to see you at the distillery again soon.
