Our Oxford Rye Dry Gin is a juniper-forward rye gin using a classic combination of botanicals to give bold notes of juniper, pine and citrus, and a hint of aromatic spice.
Gin recipes are all about telling a story. Our gin recipe tells the story of our fields, starting with the seed that we plant and the heritage grain that we grow. As with everything at The Oxford Artisan Distillery, the gin base is distilled from our heritage grains, grown just for us mostly within 50 miles of Oxford. Eschewing pesticides and chemical fertilisers all of our crops are grown sustainably, contributing to an abundance of wildflowers, insects and birds across our farms.
If a long-time fan of our gin, you might notice a change to our name and label. Previously certified Organic, we have decided to focus on putting our farming first, whilst making no changes at all to how our grain is farmed. This change reflects our commitment to working with all farmers working restoratively as we do (not just those certified Organic), using no chemical inputs whatsoever and putting the soil health first.
Suggested serve: Fill a highball glass with ice and pour in 1 part gin to 3 parts Fever-Tree Refreshingly Light Tonic. Garnish with a slice of tart apple.

“This is a hyper-local product which makes an active contribution to biodiversity – world’s away from the industrial alcohol bought in by most distillers. From mother’s ruin to saviour of the planet.”
