Our Story

Handcrafting premium spirits from grain to glass using authentic ingredients grown by local farmers. Every detail is considered in what we craft and how you experience it.

At Coppercraft, we have a certain way of doing things. It’s simply who we are and how we craft our spirits and your experience. Creating a legacy that embraces hard work and celebrates our community of family and friends. We’re proud to be an American distillery. Honored to open our doors to the community. Loving what we do. Having fun doing it. Eager to share the Coppercraft experience with you.

The Story is in the Details

It’s amazing what attention to detail, hard work, and a lot of heart can produce. What once was the Belden Brick and Supply in Holland, Michigan has been transformed into an authentic distillery and tasting room. Friends Walter Catton and Mark Fellwock established Coppercraft Distillery in 2012. The two men shared the dream and the passion to create premium small-batch spirits by hand using local ingredients and share these spirits with the community. Joining them to bring Coppercraft spirits to classically inspired cocktails that genuinely complement the spirits using freshly pressed juices, locally grown herbs and other house-made ingredients is Jenney Grant.

As you step inside, the centerpiece of the business—the genuine Vendome® copper still—which was proudly manufactured in the USA. At 350 gallons, the copper still allows our distillers the ability to create spirits with complexity and character, ultimately delivering a superior product.

Everything at Coppercraft has been done carefully and with much consideration. Keeping the distilling process at the forefront of the building ensures guests will fully embrace the story and art of handcrafted spirits—from the local farms where ingredients are sourced to the precision and time devoted to distilling the mash and bottling the spirits.

The building was gutted to make room for the still, processing equipment grain, storage, and tasting room. Staying true to the heritage of spirits, the owners gave the distillery an old, industrial feel. They have created a warm and inviting space by incorporating re-purposed woods from years past with the right amount of metals that accent the tasting room and processing area.

Spirits

Currently, we offer rum, gin, vodka and citrus vodka. We also distill many varieties of whiskey, with a focus and passion for bourbon. We have produced a variety of small batch whiskeys, including a high-rye, 100% corn, chocolate malt, and a red wheat to name a few. Release of the small batch whiskeys will begin in the summer of 2014.

We feature a seasonally changing cocktail menu. Ingredients in our signature cocktails are sourced from local, independent producers and growers.

Also, we’ve been named the official spirits of Tulip Time 2014 featuring the Coppercraft Tulip Thyme Cocktail.

Tours, Tasting and Events

In our tasting room, we thoughtfully mix cocktails, one drink at a time. The goal isn’t speed, to offer our guests a one of a kind experience. Through shared conversation a story about the spirits or the still is often had. We want to educate folks on the art of distilling and the people who help make it possible, from the local farmers who supply our ingredients to the fourth-generation company that built our still.

Vodka Awarded Golded Medal by TheFiftyBest.com

HOLLAND, Mich. (July 7, 2014) – Coppercraft Distillery, a Holland-based distiller of quality spirits with a focus on local ingredients and production, was recently awarded a gold medal for its vodka by TheFiftyBest.com. TheFiftyBest.com hosted a domestic vodka tasting, where 45 contenders were evaluated for the distinguished “Best Domestic Vodka” awards for 2014.

“We are very honored for our vodka to receive a gold medal from TheFiftyBest.com,” said Owner and Co-Founder Walter Catton. “Perfecting the flavor of the vodka was the most time consuming process of any of our spirits to ensure a smooth, clean tasting vodka that can stand on its own. This evaluation reaffirms our belief that this is a world-class product.”

Using professional criteria, a pre-qualified panel of judges blind-tasted the vodkas and rated them individually on a 1-5 point scoring system, with 5 being the best. After tallying the scores, medals were awarded based on the judges’ impressions. The complete ranking results, along with tasting notes, can be viewed here:www.thefiftybest.com/spirits/domestic_vodka/

The 9,000-square-foot distillery and 50-seat tasting room were opened in November at 184 120th Ave. in Holland, MI. Visitors are invited to sample the products as well as enjoy a hand created cocktail showcasing Coppercraft’s spirits paired with freshly squeezed juices and other ingredients, many of which are made in house. In addition to the current spirits offerings of gin, rum, vodka and citrus flavored vodka, Coppercraft Distillery is also producing and aging bourbons, whiskies and brandies that are set for release later this year.
