Welcome to the distillery formerly known as Big Derby!
Long story short: when the trademark application for the name “Derby Distilling” was denied due to potential confusion with an existing business, the government reviewer said that “Big Derby Distilling” was sufficiently distinctive and would pass. Alas, a different reviewer got the “Big Derby” trademark application and didn’t agree.
No use crying over spilled whiskey, so we’re moving on… and are now Copperworks Distilling.
We’ll be crafting fine spirits in traditional Scottish copper stills, built by expert coppersmiths who hammer the metal by hand. We believe these traditional copper pot and column stills will provide the best possible flavor for our spirits. In other words: copper works!
Coming in fall 2012
Copperworks Distilling Company will be a showpiece craft distillery, tasting room and retail store located in the heart of Seattle’s downtown waterfront. We’ll create premium gin and whiskey that can stand impressively on their own or serve as a delicious base for new and classic cocktails.
