Award Winning Flavoured Whiskies and their Signature Cocktails

At the Bartender Spirits Awards 2022, Copper Still Distillery won a number of medals for their intriguing and flavorful 85 proof whiskies

Founded in Lake Havasu City Arizona, Copper Still Distillery ties to the city and the state in everything they do. The small batch, quality products are inspired by the time the team spends on the lake with their friends and family. 

In fact, their story began on the lake where the founders met during a day of boating. When the group went back home, they decided to work on their ideas that were only banter till that point and here we have it - a brand with the most flavorsome whiskies, each with their own signature cocktail.
