Oxley gin is not easily made and it's probably not for you. First, they hand spoon their macerated grain in to the kettle but then they do something you weren't expecting. Well, unless you were expecting them to create a vacuum that causes the alcohol to vaporize at -5°C. In the true manner of distillation, the vapor passes through a colder probe at -100°C where it changes back to a liquid. If that's what you were expecting, then you were right.
They only make 120 bottles of the sweet juniper goodness a day and only for 4 days a week, so you probably won't get one. Hell, I probably won't get one and I'm friggin' popular.
The stuff is launching in SoCal with no price set yet. The bottle comes with a galvanized tin bucket around the bottom and a leather cord fashionably twisted around the neck. Cuz, you know, that's pretty cool.
