Tasty botan­i­cals

Gardeners' World - - We Love April - £34.95 for a 50cl bot­tle from Ox­ford Botanic Gar­den’s shop and on­line at spir­itoftoad.com/physic-gin

Nearly 400 years since Ox­ford Univer­sity cre­ated Eng­land’s first physic gar­den, the col­lege’s own dis­tiller, The Ox­ford Ar­ti­san Dis­tillery (TOAD), has un­veiled its Physic Gin. The recipe for this botan­i­cal tip­ple, which con­tains 25 plants and herbs, is in­spired by a cat­a­logue of plants grown by the dis­tillery’s first keeper, Ja­cob Bo­bart the El­der. TOAD is the world’s only dis­tiller with ac­cess to the pre­cious ar­chive.
