Copperworks Whiskey

Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey

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

Seattle Times, 10/5/16

Release 003Since long before we opened our doors in October 2013, our goal has been to produce an exquisite whiskey in a newly emerging category: American Single Malt Whiskey.

We’re thrilled to announce that Copperworks Whiskey is now available in our tasting room and in the Copperworks Online Store.

Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey, Release 003, is made from 100% malted barley and our first release using a special “Five Malt” recipe consisting of 75% pale malt and 25% caramel malts. It was twice-distilled in our traditional copper pot stills. It was then matured for 34 months at Copperworks in full-size charred, new American Oak barrels coopered for us in Kentucky.

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

    Hey guys,

    My name is Mat and I own one of the top craft spirits stores in San Francisco called The Epicurean Trader. A customer mentioned your product, so I thought I would reach out and see if you have distribution in California yet?

    Cheers, Mat

      Sorry to be so slow in responding to your comment — it slipped by us. Copperworks is self-distributing and only in the greater Seattle metro area. We hope to be in California at some point, but it won’t be in the foreseeable future. Thanks for checking.
