This brandy distillery was created in the heart of bourbon country.

Copper & Kings is located in Louisville, Kentucky’s Butchertown neighborhood, where they bring hand-crafted richness back to the forefront of American spirits.  

Copper & Kings offers three brandy expressions: American Brandy, American Apple Brandy, and Butchertown Brandy. The American Brandy is a blend of copper pot-distilled brandy with a unique flavor. The 90-proof brandy is distilled from California grapes and finished in Kentucky Bourbon and New American Oak barrels.  

The American Apple Brandy has an authentic and natural flavor. The 92-proof drink can be enjoyed on the rocks or with a favorite mixer. Distilled from Michigan apples and finished in Kentucky Bourbon and New American Oak barrels, this brandy has a velvety finish.  

Butchertown Brandy is not the everyday, ordinary brandy. With 75% aged in Kentucky Bourbon barrels and 25% in New American Oak barrels, this 124-proof is superb. The copper pot-distilled batch is made from California grapes. Serve it over ice in an elegant rocks glass or add a touch of water to enable the bloom.  

Copper & Kings is always striving to become more sustainable. Moving forward into the new year, they will reexamine their recycling programs to ensure they are doing as much as they can. Any plastic that is used in their distillery bar is made from recyclable or compostable material.  

This promiscuous spirit plays well with just about everything. It takes on the characterizes of its mixing partners and enhances them.
