Having launched at the Whisky Show in 2021 The Graduate has been bottled at 51.3% ABV and with only 1,428 bottles, is a true collector’s item. The Graduate is a bright, spicy and herbal whisky. Notes of sticky ginger cake and ripe banana mingle with creamy custard, salty roasted nuts and toffee.
Since the distillery launched their first batch of Oxford Rye Whisky back in 2021, each subsequent batch has been drawing praise for its quality of flavour. Supporting biodiversity through sustainable farming, the distillery only use heritage organic grains grown both close to Oxford and on prestigious estates such as Highgrove and Sandringham.
The distillery’s grain contributes to soil health in the English countryside and is grown specifically for the distillery, making The Oxford Artisan Distillery the only distillery in the world with a license to use these heritage grains, farmed exclusively for flavour and not yield.
