Chalgrove Artisan Distillery is the home of OX44, OX1, OX2 & OX4 handcrafted gins. We use a neutral grain spirit which is 96% ABV (alcohol by volume) to create our Oxford Dry Gin. We then add the flavour using our selected botanicals.
The neutral spirit is placed in our alembic copper still. The base botanicals (including juniper berries and coriander) are added to the spirit to macerate for 24 hours, after which the additional botanicals are then added to the pot still and we then begin the distillation process.
After the distillation process is completed, the gin is then stored for 5 days to allow the flavours to enfuse.
We create our gin with care and dedication using our copper alembic still. This ensures that we produce a premium product. In addition, although we filter our gin, we do not chill-filter which enables us to retain all of the flavours in our gin. Due to the retention of natural oils, the appearance of the gin in the bottle may look hazy. This may also be evident when you add the mix of your choice to the gin.
