About The Oxford Artisan Distillery

The Oxford Artisan Distillery in Oxford’s first distillery – and one of the world’s very few true craft distilleries.

They 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 their 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 their own grain, they’ve built their own hand made beautiful copper stills, and they bottle their 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.

Getting there

The Oxford Artisan Distillery (TOAD) is a craft distillery located in Oxford’s South Park. It’s a pleasant 30-minute walk from Oxford city centre. But great views of the city come with a price, so be prepared for some uphill walking. Otherwise a taxi will get you there in about 10 minutes depending on traffic conditions.

By bus, take any of the 4 buses (4, 4A, 4B, 4C) towards Wood Farm and get off at the Warneford Hospital stop. From there, TOAD is just a short 300 metres walk away. Alternatively, any bus to Oxford Brooke’s University will serve you well. The distillery is a five-minute walk away from the campus.

Safeguarding

The distillery tour has been reconfigured to provide an amazing experience designed to showcase the craft grain-to-glass distillery whilst safeguarding visitors and staff.

Tour groups are no bigger than 12 guests to allow everyone the space they need to feel safe. Hand sanitiser is available at several points throughout the tour.

Masks are no longer mandatory, but the organisers recommend guests wear one when not seated. The tour guides will continue to wear a mask or visor.
