Who we Are

Founded in Lake Havasu City Arizona, you can see our ties to the city and the state in everything we do. Our logo design features a rendering of the famous London Bridge and our state flag is proudly displayed under the bridge. Our products are inspired by the time we spend on the lake with our friends and family. Our story began on the lake where our founders met during a day of boating with mutual friends. After the day was over, the group went back to a friend’s home and this is when it all began.

 

Andy, our head distiller, brought over some of his Root Beer Moonshine to share with the group. Roy, our chief pencil pusher, had never tasted moonshine that was so smooth and had such a great taste. Like many others, he expected it to taste like boat gas and never expected to enjoy the shot! Well, several shots later Andy and Roy were talking about taking Andy’s hobby to a commercial distillery where patrons could come and enjoy Andy’s flavored moonshines. The two agreed to meet in the morning to put together a business plan to help Andy transition his love for making quality liquor into an actual business.

 

The next morning the two worked together for a few hours and Copper Still Distillery was born. Andy quickly realized that he had a passion for making quality small batch liquor but had no desire to run a business alone without someone to take care of the paperwork and red tape. Roy’s past business experience made for a perfect partnership where Andy is free to create quality liquor and Roy insures that the paperwork is completed. We do things the old fashion way and never compromise quality for quantity.

 

Our chief mixologist Carri, and Andy’s better half, creates extraordinary mixed drinks from our Moonshines, Vodkas, and Whisky’s. Sip it straight to enjoy the pure unfiltered corn whiskey and then try one of the many cocktails that Carri has created (and continues to create daily). Our Vodka is made the old fashion way with potatoes and is Gluten Free, so we have something for everyone. Whether you visit our distillery or take home a bottle, our products are sure to inspire conversation and a good time!
