At The Oxford Artisan Distillery we’re of one mind that winter is a time for delicious, warming liqueurs. Within the distillery walls we’re informally referring to this as ‘The Apres Ski Collection’; we might not be able to ski this year but we can certainly be warm indoors and enjoy the post-ski nourishment.
Our Oxford Rye Liqueur Collection contains a 20cl flask of our two bestsellers: our Cuisse de Nymphe Gin Liqueur and Dam Sloe Gin.
As with everything at The Oxford Artisan Distillery, both liqueurs have a gin base distilled from our ancient heritage grains, grown just for us 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.
Cuisse de Nymphe
Available annually as a limited edition Distillery Edition, Cuisse de Nymphe is a delicate spirit with the perfect balance of aromatic organic rose petals and apples leading to subtle hints of first press locally foraged damsons and sloes, handpicked with love by our distillery team. True to our craft nature we pick our apples from local organic orchards and have them pressed by Oxford’s Tiddly Pommes, a local micro-enterprise turning local apples into delicious juice.
Fresh and fruity, Cuisse de Nymphe is perfect served neat over ice or topping a refreshing chilled glass of Prosecco.
ABV 25% 20cl
Dam Sloe Gin
An artisanal sloe gin made from wild damsons and sloes, and matured for one year with our own Oxford Rye Organic Dry Gin, this is the kind of spirit that shows exactly what we're all about. Working with nature, taking our time and producing something we could happily sup all evening.
We recommend our Dam Sloe Gin neat, ideally at the end of a meal with a good cheese, or in an Artisan Aperitif. To make your Artisan Aperitif at home:
50ml Dam Sloe Gin
25ml Sweet Vermouth
15ml Oxford Rye Vodka
50ml Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic
Stir together the Dam Sloe Gin, Sweet Vermouth and Oxford Rye Vodka and strain into your glass.
Add 50ml Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic and stir to combine.
