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.
This classic gin is led by juniper and citrus and it is tied to our fields and our locality through our meadowsweet and angelica seed. From beginning to end the recipe is designed to let the quality of our spirit and the story of our heritage grain shine through.
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 twist of lemon peel.
Juniper, Coriander, Angelica Root, Orris Root, Lemon Peel, Orange Peel, Bitter Orange Peel, Nutmeg, Cubeb, Liquorice Root, Meadowsweet and Angelica Seed.
“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.”
