Oxley Gin: A Dive into Cold-Distilled Excellence

Oxley Gin isn't your average spirit. It's a revolutionary take on gin, crafted using a pioneering cold distillation process that sets it apart from the crowd. Here at The General Wine, we're thrilled to offer this unique gin and guide you through its exquisite flavour profile.

The Science Behind the Spirit:

Unlike traditional gins distilled at high temperatures, Oxley utilises a fascinating cold distillation technique. This method involves distilling the botanicals at a staggering -5°C, allowing for the delicate capture of flavours that might otherwise be lost in the heat. The result? A gin bursting with freshness, vibrancy, and a smooth, sippable character.

Unveiling the Flavour:

On the Nose:

The first encounter with Oxley Gin is an invigorating one. Clean juniper aromas take centre stage, intertwined with delicate floral notes. Hints of pine needles and citrus zest add a touch of complexity, while subtle whispers of dry herbs complete the inviting bouquet.

On the Palate:

The cold distillation process truly shines on the palate. The gin presents with a vibrant zestiness, almost effervescent in texture. Juniper berries remain the hero, but they're beautifully balanced by bursts of grapefruit peel and a touch of aniseed. As the flavour unfolds, star anise takes the stage, leaving a soft juniper note lingering on the finish.

Botanical Blend:

Oxley Gin boasts a symphony of 14 carefully chosen botanicals. It incorporates classic gin botanicals like coriander, grains of paradise, cassia bark, angelica root, orris, and liquorice. But what truly sets it apart is the innovative use of fresh-frozen citrus peels (orange, lemon, and grapefruit) alongside more unusual botanicals like nutmeg, meadowsweet, cocoa, and vanilla beans. The cold distillation process coaxes out the truest essence of these botanicals, creating a truly unique flavour profile.

Serving Suggestions:

Oxley Gin's versatility shines through in various cocktail applications. Here are a few suggestions to unlock its full potential:

  • The Perfect Gin & Tonic:  For a classic serve that highlights the gin's brilliance, use a premium Indian tonic water. Garnish with a twist of grapefruit peel or a sprig of rosemary for an extra touch of elegance.
  • A Refreshing Summer Spritz: Combine Oxley Gin with elderflower liqueur, soda water, and a squeeze of fresh lime for a light and bubbly summer cocktail.
  • Negroni with a Twist:  Elevate the classic Negroni with Oxley Gin.  Combine equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth, stir well with ice, and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
  • The Oxley Martini:  For a martini with a difference,  muddle a few fresh mint leaves in a shaker.  Add Oxley Gin, dry vermouth, and ice, then shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.

In Conclusion:

Oxley Gin is a testament to innovation and its commitment to crafting a truly exceptional spirit. The cold distillation process unlocks a world of fresh, vibrant flavours, making it a gin unlike any other. Whether you're a seasoned gin enthusiast or just starting your exploration, Oxley Gin is a must-try for anyone who appreciates a unique and flavourful spirit.
