Welcome to Copperfish Distillery

Located in the heart of the Cornish coastal town of Looe, Copperfish Distillery is where passion meets craftsmanship. Since our founding in 2018, we’ve been dedicated to creating high-quality, handcrafted spirits that showcase the best of Cornwall.

Our Story

In the summer of 2018, we produced our first batch of Moonshine, marking the beginning of our journey. With a keen eye for detail, we collaborated with a designer to bring our brand to life, from labelling our initial batches of Moonshine to crafting our website. Our shop on Buller Quay opened its doors, offering a range of Moonshines and branded merchandise, including our iconic T-shirts.

Throughout 2019, we focused on refining our processes and building partnerships to ensure consistent quality. In December of that year, our team came together, and we installed and trialled our first run of special dry gin. Since then, we’ve expanded our product range to include a variety of Moonshine flavours, flavoured Gins, Quality Rums, and even ventured into producing our own limited run of Vodka.

2023 marked the introduction of our prized KERBON, a Cornish “Bourbon” Style Spirit made from local corn, barley, and wheat. This labour of love, nearly four years in the making, embodies our commitment to quality and innovation.

Our brand, Copperfish, pays homage to Cornwall’s major industries of fishing and mining, with distilling being synonymous with “coppers.” Our spirits consistently win accolades, including prizes in the Taste of the West competitions for the past three years.
