You might remember this little beauty as our Pure Rye Spirit. Coming out of Lockdown III with a brand new look, a brand new name and the same liquid, this is Oxford Rye; not a whisky, not intended to be a whisky, but certainly a preview of the great whiskies to come.
We like to call this ’liquid rye’. The purest expression of our ancient heritage rye, the grain is harvested, twice distilled and then rested in American Oak to bring out its best characteristics. Our Oxford Rye has an intoxicating aroma of sandalwood and vanilla, whilst on the palate the delicate flavour of creamy praline, nuts and sourdough is followed by a finish of cloves, nutmeg and smooth spice.
As with everything at The Oxford Artisan Distillery, our Oxford Rye is distilled from our heritage grains, grown just for us in the English countryside. Eschewing pesticides and chemical fertilisers all of our crops are grown sustainably, contributing to an abundance of wildflowers, insects and birds across our farms.
