In an era of industrially produced spirits, Coppersea Distilling takes the long way around, confident in its philosophy of favoring tradition over speed and quality over volume. Coppersea is an award-winning farm distillery in the Hudson Valley that crafts fine whiskies and eaux de vie from locally sourced grain and fruit.
Named for the sea of copper stills dotting New York’s Hudson Valley throughout the 1800s, this unique distillery invokes a sense of days past. Employing heritage distilling techniques little-used over the last century, Coppersea strives to produce spirits in a manner reminiscent of 19th-century New York farmstead distilleries. Coppersea is one of the few distilleries that malts its own grain, uses a direct-fire copper still, and ferments traditionally in open wooden fermentation tanks.
