About Copper Rivet Distillery
Masthouse Whisky is made by Copper Rivet Distillery, a family owned and run business, it’s one of just a few distilleries in the UK with ‘farm to glass’, single estate provenance. Until the launch of the sell out Masthouse Single Malt Whisky in December 2020, the distillery was best known for the multi award winning Dockyard Gin and Vela Vodka – among the only spirits of their kind to be distilled from grain to glass in the UK. Since launching, Masthouse Whisky has found wide appeal owing to its ultra smooth, easy drinking style and the initial Single Malt launch was followed by a UK first, a column distilled Single Malt Whisky. Early 2022 will see the launch of Masthouse Grain Whisky, again expected to garner wide appeal. In April 2021, the family opened The Pumproom @ Copper Rivet Distillery, an already hugely popular relaxed fine dining restaurant and cocktail bar which is a natural complement to the industry leading, ultra-premium craft spirits created on site.
