Another excellent gin that uses is new techniques to innovate the industry.
Oxley gin is produced using a bespoke, vacuum still. The vacuum still allows distillation to occur much, much lower than the 78C° required to boil alcohol at normal pressure. Whilst other distilleries have made use of this technology, Oxley take things to new heights (or depths) by distilling at an extremely cold -5C° .
Oxley state that this allows the botanicals to retain their delicate oils and aromas, without “overcooking” the ingredients. Oxley use an impressive selection of 14 botanicals to make their gin: juniper, orange, grapefruit, lemons, meadowsweet, vanilla, aniseed, orris root, liquorice root, cocoa, grains of paradise, cassia bark, nutmeg and coriander.
These botanicals are known as “Recipe 38”as it was the 38th experiment that produced it. The result of this meticulous development process and innovative distillation is a fresh, lively and precise gin, with powerful notes of citrus alongside more delicate floral and spicy flavours, offset by a gentle, slightly woody juniper note.
Bottled at 47% ABV, this is a robust and warming gin with endless character. All Oxley gin comes in bigger 1 litre bottles.
