Description

Join Women Who Whiskey at Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park for an exclusive behind-the-scenes dive into the development of a Minnesota Micro Distillery.


Copperwing Distillery is opening their doors just for Women Who Whiskey on Tuesday, September 26. We’ll hear from the co-owners who have diverse backgrounds in engineering, law, and medicine about the process of bringing the first distillery and cocktail room to St. Louis Park. From navigating licensing and city ordinances, to raising investment funds, building a cocktail room, and recipe development, we'll get an in-depth look at what it takes to be part of the Minnesota craft distillery boom.


We'll tour the distillery and see the equipment they designed and built themselves, and learn about their product line which currently includes vodka, gin, light whiskey, and an intriguing spirit called Vodskey, as well as their line of specialty liqueurs. We'll build our own cocktails using Copperwing recipes with bartender, Tim, and Flagsmash taco food truck will be on site keeping everyone fed while we imbibe.


This will be an intimate event with limited tickets available, so early reservations are recommended.

About Copperwing Distillery

Copperwing Distillery is the story of three friends who come from the fields of engineering, medicine, and law. In 2014, Chris and Brian, who were former neighbors and fast friends, got to talking one night over cocktails. They speculated about what it would take to open their own micro-distillery and realized it was something within their reach. A short while later, Chris recruited Kyle, a former colleague and home brew hobbyist, to join the endeavor and Copperwing Distillery was born. Research and investments ensued. The guys found a warehouse space in St. Louis Park and set to work pursuing licenses, designing and building stills, and developing recipes for spirits. They did this in the hours after tucking their children into bed because all three had day jobs and family responsibilities.

The original goal was to make product for distribution, but it didn't take long for sights to be set on something bigger. Focus shifted to creating a cocktail room, something that hadn't been done before in St. Louis Park. Chris, Brian, and Kyle worked closely with the St. Louis Park mayor and city council to get zoning and licensing approval. They invested in industrial stills and cocktail room construction. Kyle resigned from his day job to take on the work of creating a distillery full time. As of today, the cocktail room is open and Copperwing Distillery is ready to welcome you. We hope you will become a part of our story. https://www.copperwingdistillery.com
