Copperworks Distilling Company
Copperworks Distilling is a distillery, tasting room and retail store located in the heart of Seattle’s downtown waterfront. The company was founded by co-owners/distillers Jason Parker and Micah Nutt.
The company crafts premium spirits that can stand impressively on their own or serve as a delicious base for cocktails. Copperworks offers gin and vodka made from malted barley right now. Our all-malt whiskey is aging in oak barrels.
Our Traditional Copper Stills
The magic of Copperworks’ distillation process is in its four traditional Scottish copper stills. Three are pot stills and one is a column still.
The Wash Still
Our largest pot still—our wash still—weighs nearly three tons, stands more than 15 feet tall and enables Copperworks to produce up to two 53-gallon barrels of whiskey per day. Its job is to distill the beer, or “wash” for the first of two distillations required to make whiskey.
The Spirit Still
Our “spirit still,” also a pot still, is the second still used in the process of making Copperworks’ all malt whiskey. It can also produce pure alcohol when the alcohol vapor is directed through our 25-plate column still. Copperworks’ vodka and the base for Copperworks’ gin comes from our column still.
The Gin Still
Our gin still is the smallest pot still in volume, but stands as tall as the other stills in the Copperworks’ lineup. Using a still that’s specifically designed to make gin allows us to make truly authentic styles of gin.
