The tasting bit of this distillery's offerings is completely free. Unless you actually buy the spirits, there's no charge. During weekends, the distillery holds small guided tours in which visitors are taken behind the scenes, given a breakdown of the brewing and distilling process, and the given a guided taste tour. All the stills here are handcrafted. If you're so inclined, the tasting room can be rented for private events. The bar itself is a gorgeous Art Nouveau structure.

Copperworks Distilling Company Reviews & Ratings
Great distillery tour! We had Barrett as our tour guide. He shared immense technical knowledge of the processes used to make vodka, gin and whiskey, followed by a knowledgeable tasting session. It was a great experience and would recommend this place for anyone who is an enthusiast!
Like reviewer Matt Leach wrote, the service is terrible. I type into Google Maps where to find the best bourbon. This is a result. I fight tourist and entitled Seattle resident traffic getting down to this location. Male bartender is speaking across the bar with an extremely fat man. No others in sight. I yell at the bartender, "I'd like to buy a bottle of your whiskey!" His response, "we don't carry bourbon, just American single malt." I look at him. He goes back to talking to the obese man. No interest in why I need the bourbon. No interest trying to introduce me to something else. No attempt to direct me to another store. No customer service whatsoever. Also, all of you other reviewers who mention bourbon in your reviews of this place -- you're making Google Maps results inaccurate. Stop it.
The quality of the spirits here are very good and the tasting can be tailored to your preferences. Their whiskies were all good, but have a relatively short barrel aging (34-36 months) in new oak, so the palate can be a bit hot and the finish can be a little short. Still worth the price, and nearly as good as Westland, although some might argue they're equal. Waiting for their release of some sherry cask aged whiskey, with a little longer barrel time. The staff at Copperworks is very knowledgeable and friendly, except for the bartender on our most recent visit, who was a snarky Millennial who's knowledge and attitude were both unimpressive.
This place looks really interesting. Unfortunately I can't comment on their spirits since they went out of their way NOT to serve us. The guy working the bar was busy with some suits, probably distributors, and didn't say a single word or acknowledge our presence while we waited awkwardly at the bar for 10 minutes. So we left. Maybe put the same effort into your staffing that you put into your product.
Great little place. Wonderful, friendly staff! The spirits aren't bad either ;)
