Our Team

Co-Founder/President
Jason was the first brewer at Pike Place Brewery in 1989, helped open Fish Tale Ales in Olympia, WA, worked at Red Hook Brewery, and helped build and run Pyramid Brewing in Seattle, WA. He's now making American Single Malt Whiskey from malted barley.

We asked the question, “How would spirits taste if they were distilled from superior craft beer, without hops, rather than from the standard methods and ingredients that traditional distilleries use?” The answer became our founding principle and is so fundamental that we put it on every Copperworks label: "From great brewing comes great spirits.”

Micah Nutt Co-Founder/Vice President
Micah, a long-time software engineer who is also a skilled and technical home brewer, ran the distilling operations at Copperworks for the first 5 years. Before retiring from daily production in June 2019, he spent 6 months training our distillers.
Vice President/Co-Owner
Jeff is an attorney who headed west to be part of the craft spirits movement. After assisting in launching Letterpress Distilling in Seattle, he joined Copperworks and is now spreading the word of American Single Malt Whiskey.

From Great Brewing Comes Great Spirits

At Copperworks Distilling, we started with what we know: brewing beer. We brewed a Pale Ale, and a Scotch Ale, and then then we distilled the alcohol out of them to turn them into Whiskey, Vodka, and Gin.

Scottish Stills on the Seattle Waterfront

We built our distillery in the heart of the Seattle Waterfront, where millions (~10 million in 2019) visitors go each year. Our stills were hand-hammered in the highlands of Scotland, and are visible right behind our floor-to-ceiling windows in the tasting room.

We Won!

Our products have won dozens of awards and accolades, and in 2018, we were named Distillery Of The Year by the American Distilling Institute!

We Sell Everything We Can Make

Every year, we sell everything we can make, with some releases selling out in just a few days.

Now's The Time To Grow

Vodka and gin can be sold in the same year they are made, but whiskey takes 3-6 years to mature before it's ready to sell. We've proven that our whiskey is delicious. Now is the time to make more so we can continue to grow our sales in the future.
