Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey
Copperworks American Single Malt Whiskey Release 038 was created by combining six casks of whiskey distilled from Baronesse Barley with two casks of whiskey distilled from our standard Pale Malt recipe. We then added 5% of the whiskey that was matured in a Manzanilla Sherry cask.
This is the first time we have used whiskey matured in a Manzanilla Sherry cask in one of our whiskeys. All nine casks used in this release were aged for a minimum of 39 months.
The majority of Release 038 was distilled from Baronesse Barley grown by Joseph’s Grainery, a family farm in southeastern Washington State. Baronesse is an exceptional malting barley and Joseph’s Grainery is the only farm in the world that can legally grow it. Learn more about Baronesse Barley in the Copperworks blog.
Tasting Notes: Aromas of rum raisin ice cream and pear balsamic give way to flavors of fig conserves and baked pears. Finishes with hazelnuts, fruit leather, and dark cherry candy.
750ml, 50% ABV. 2,119 (750ml) bottles produced.

Release 034: Copperworks Peated Malt Whiskey
Copperworks Peated Malt Whiskey is made from locally grown barley that was malted with peat from a bog in Washington State. The malt, produced by Skagit Valley Malting, is the first peated malted barley produced entirely from ingredients sourced in Washington State.
The smoky flavors in this release are more subtle than what you might find in Scotch malt whiskey as we worked to balance flavors of the Washington peat with the flavors of the Washington-grown barley and new Oak American casks.
This release comes from eight casks of whiskey that were brewed and distilled from 100% of the Copeland variety of barley grown in Washington’s Skagit Valley and smoked during the malting process with Washington peat. The whiskey was matured for just over four years in new American Oak casks.
Tasting Notes: This release offers aromas of campfire, roasted tomatoes, and exotic spices. Flavor notes of roasted almonds, toast, and orange zest lead to a long finish of hickory, cedar, and wet earth, ending with pleasant briny and wood notes.
