The talk and tasting tour at TOAD was well worth the visit. My friends and I were still talking about it when we were travelling home after our weekend in Oxford. Well worth going especially if you like gin.

The Oxford Artisan Distillery (TOAD) is an independent distillery using ancient grains and organic crops to make vodka and gin. Really informative tour of their small distillery and the tasting really highlighted the different flavours. Well worth a visit!

Tagore was our Chauffeur and guide, and it turns out one of the founders of TOAD. What a thoroughly lovely chap and really enthused about the distillery. The content was interesting and the samples yummy. I would highly recommend the tour.

Really enjoyed the tour. Its a small business and everyone was very welcoming. The stills are almost works of art and you can tell they all enjoy what they do. You can be picked up from the city centre which I found extremely useful.
