Limited release of gin aged in a barrel with a malt-whiskey history
On Friday, September 5, Copperworks Distilling Company will introduce Copperworks Malt Barrel Gin. This is a limited release of gin that’s been aged in an American Oak barrel previously used to age premium all-malt whiskey.
Our Malt Barrel Gin spent six months in a barrel rich with malt-whiskey essence, giving it soft vanilla and oak notes. The gin retained in juniper spiciness and there’s a hint of burnt-sugar sweetness, with orange and cinnamon in the nose.
Our Malt Barrel Gin is second in a series of limited-release aged gins Copperworks is developing. We’re working with various barrel types to release an assortment of aged gins with different flavor profiles. We’ll release them as they reach their peak flavor.
Price and Availability: This is a special, limited release for Copperworks. Roughly 250 bottles will be available for sampling and sale only in our tasting room. Price is $44.95, plus tax. (Limit of 2 bottles per person.)
