Welcome to The Oxford Artisan Distillery (TOAD, to those in the know), this ancient city’s first distillery – and one of the world’s very few true craft distilleries.

We cultivate, craft, create and curate the very finest spirits using sustainably grown populations of ancient heritage grain. In fact, the rare and distinctive subtleties in our spirits are a direct result of our dedication to selecting genetically diverse rye, wheat and barley grown on small, local farms.

As well as growing our own grain, we’ve built our own hand made beautiful copper stills, and we bottle our own spirits with the reverence they deserve. In fact, from the terroir of the soil to the temptation in each sip, every aspect has been meticulously considered and painstakingly honed.

Join us to discover the principals and production processes that make our spirits.

Tours

Standard Tour (£20 / 45 minutes): You will be shown how we make vodka, gin, absinthe and rye whiskey and how we go the extra mile to make TOAD a true craft distillery. You will finish with the chance to taste our wonderful spirits.

Founder’s Tour (£50/ 90 minutes): Hosted by one of our founders this tour gives a unique insight into our journey, how we select our ingredients and how we make our vodka, gin, absinthe and rye whiskey. In addition, we will host an extended tasting taking you through our different spirits and finishing with a large gin and tonic.

We are located on South Park Depot, Cheney Lane, 1.5 miles from the city centre. We offer a complimentary minibus pick up and drop off from Broad Street in the city centre of the city to the distillery.
