Copperworks Whiskey

Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey

“…one of the most impressive whiskeys released in Seattle in recent years.” 

Seattle Times, 10/5/16

Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey, Release 006

Release 006 is Copperworks first release to draw on the flavors of used oak. The release combines seven barrels of Copperworks whiskey matured in new American Oak with a half cask of whiskey matured in a used Oloroso Sherry cask. The whiskey uses our Five Malt recipe (75% pale malt and 25% caramel malts).

The result is a whiskey with a nose of dried fruit especially cherry and orange. The flavor has notes of leather, almond paste, and more dried fruit, with a finish of slight walnut and leather notes.

Copperworks Whiskey is available in our Seattle tasting room and in the Copperworks Online Store.

Price: $59.89 (not including tax or shipping) for 750ml bottle.
