Chairman and CEO

Tom Nicolson

Tom was born in Jericho, Oxford, and to this day lives on a barge on the River Thames but a stone’s throw from where he was born.  He comes from a family that has been involved in the wine and whisky business in Scotland for generations.  Tom’s early love of music lead him to a successful career in the music industry, his infectious passion for nurturing creative talent resulted in him working for award winning artists and producers and culminated with him creating a successful recording studio business in London.

Just over four years ago Tom decided that past was prologue and looked to his ancestors for his next challenger.   His passion for the creation of spirits ignited he started thinking seriously about setting up his own distillery.   In his words “I really appreciated how true craft distilleries took charge of the entire distilling process, I became resolved to give my thoughts, my feelings and consideration to the ancient art of distillation.”

The decision made Tom begin the journey of creating Oxford’s first craft distillery assembling a team of passionate professionals that shared his vision.  Four years on the vision has become a reality with the stills running in June 2017 and the distillery doors opening to visitors in July.
