Current Releases: Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey

Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey starts as a craft beer (without hops) made from the finest barley grown in and around Washington. It is then distilled twice in traditional copper stills handcrafted for Copperworks by the leading maker of Scottish pot stills, Forsyths. It is then matured in oak casks in a temperature-controlled warehouse. The variety of barley, the maturing time, and the barrels used for maturing vary by our different releases. Production details for each release are provided below.


Release 049

Tasting Notes: A shade of shimmering titian in the glass, the nose greets you as you might expect with the heft of orange oil. Light wood accompanies with unripe strawberry, ginger, and a touch of marzipan. On the palate you’ll find orange blossom tea, jasmine, honey, and an almost cake batter sweetness. The florality continues in the finish alongside piloncillo, sweet cinnamon, and red licorice.

Production Notes: Crafted from pale malted Fritz variety of barley grown in the Skagit Valley about 70 miles north of our distillery. It was matured in charred new American Oak for over 3 years. To explore the effect of the malting process, compare this to Release 050 that was made from a Vienna malting of the same barley. 50% ABV. See full spec sheet.


Release 050

Tasting Notes: With the appearance of a translucent orange agate, Release 048 makes a few laps around the flavor wheel and offers a little something for everyone. On the nose one finds bread pudding, browned butter, finger lime, chocolate, stone fruit and suede. On the palate, fruit leather, pie crust, raspberry, vanilla pipe tobacco and red wine. Rounding out the experience, the finish lingers with notes of dried fruit, pink peppercorn, green tea mochi, and lapsang souchong.

Production Notes: Crafted from Vienna malted Fritz variety of barley grown in the Skagit Valley about 70 miles north of our distillery. It was matured in charred new American Oak for over 3 years. To explore the effect of the malting process, compare this to Release 049 that was made from a Vienna malting of the same barley. 50% ABV. See full spec sheet.


Single Cask No. 22-2

Tasting Notes: Translucent pineapple in the glass, yet despite its paler appearance, it has plenty to offer up with bison grass, burning orange oil, cake batter, and aloe vera on the nose. The bright nature continues with sweet citrus and vanilla custard, bringing along some depth and florality with chamomile, shortbread, and Ceylon cinnamon. The cinnamon persists into the finish along with yucca stem, wood vanilla, and blood orange.

Production Notes: Single Cask No. 22-2 was brewed and distilled from our Five Malt recipe, a recipe develop by our founders using their extensive brewing backgrounds. The Five Malt recipe, a cornerstone at Copperworks since our inception, blends pale malt with four caramelized malts for a rich, complex flavor profile reminiscent of an intense Scotch Ale. Following distillation, it was entered into the cask in 2016 and matured for over 7 years in one of our own previously used American Single Malt whiskey casks. The use of a refilled cask ensures that the distinct character of the Five Malt recipe shines through, less impacted by the influence of Oak, allowing its nuances to take center stage.
