"A potent potion using a dizzying 25 herbs ..."

Pete Hughes Oxford Mail, 1st Feb 2018

Oxford Botanic Garden Physic Gin - Inspired by the rich history of Britain’s oldest Botanic Garden.

Founded by Tom Nicolson in the historical city of Oxford, making it the first, legal gin distillery in the 'city of dreaming spires'!

Physic Gin is the very first gin ever made for the University of Oxford, produced by Oxford's first craft distillery, The Oxford Artisan Distillery (aka TOAD)! Founded in 1621 as a physicke (physic) garden for the teaching of herbal medicine, Oxford Botanic Garden was planted during the 1640s, with a catalogue kept of all the plants grown.

TOAD is the only distillery in the entire world to be allowed access to both the garden and the catalogue. It's from this that the inspiration for Physic Gin's 25 botanicals are taken, with wormwood, rue and sweet woodruff among them.
