Copper Rivet Distillery is a unique grain-to-glass distillery located in a repurposed 19th-century dockyard pumphouse in Chatham, Kent. They produce premium whisky, gin, and vodka, handling the entire fermentation and distillation process on-site. Their approach emphasizes low-temperature and slow fermentation to create distinct flavor profiles.

Copper Rivet Distillery’s whisky production process is quite meticulous and unique. Here’s a breakdown of their approach:

  1. Grain Selection: They use locally sourced grains, ensuring high quality and traceability. The choice of grain, including the variety and harvest, plays a crucial role in the final flavor profile.

  2. Milling and Mashing: The grains are milled and then mashed to convert the starches into fermentable sugars. This step is essential for creating the base for fermentation.

  3. Fermentation: They emphasize low-temperature and slow fermentation. This process allows for the development of complex flavors and a distinct character in the whisky

  4. Distillation: The fermented mash is distilled in copper pot stills. Copper Rivet uses a combination of pot and column stills to refine the spirit, ensuring a smooth and flavorful output.

  5. Maturation: The distilled spirit is aged in ex-bourbon casks. The choice of cask and the aging process significantly influence the whisky’s taste, adding depth and complexity.

  6. Bottling: After maturation, the whisky is carefully bottled, maintaining the integrity of its flavor profile.

This grain-to-glass approach ensures that every step of the process is controlled and tailored to produce a high-quality, distinctive whisky.
