Cognac Cask Finished Gin

More than four years ago, we acquired a cask from France that previously held cognac and we filled it with Copperworks Small Batch Gin. It was a large cask (300 liters) so the gin took considerable time to pick up the flavors from the cognac that we were after — longer than any cask finished […]

Cocktails coming to the tasting room

Washington State laws recently changed to allow distilleries to serve cocktails, not just samples of spirits, as of mid-June 2020.

Copperworks Spirits are Gluten-Free

Copperworks recently completed a series of scientific tests which confirmed that our distillation removes gluten from all our spirits, all of which are made from malted barley.

Whiskey from Single Variety, Single Farm, Single Vintage Malted Barley

When you make American Single Malt Whiskey, the only grain you use is malted barley. So obviously the grain you use really matters. Like any agricultural product, barley is subject to variation in flavor due to its variety, growing location, and the weather conditions. The Pacific Northwest, where Copperworks is located, has several different climates […]

Question from an Eagle-Eyed Whiskey Lover

“Help me out…this is a FANTASTIC whiskey, but what’s up with the label: ‘Single Malt’ and ‘Recipe: Five Malt & Pale Malt’? Huh?“ We appreciated getting this great question from a customer. We agree, it’s confusing. When describing a whiskey, the word “single” in “single malt” means the whiskey in the bottle is from a...

We hear this comment a lot in the tasting room. Juniper is the defining ingredient in gin, but it’s not the base ingredient.
