unforgettable

Through a process of rigorous experimentation and perfection, we craft our various types of Copenhagen Distillery Gin to be exceptionally unique and pleasantly surprising to the palate. From the introduction of our award-winning Orange Gin in 2016 to our most recent Bay Leaf Gin, we always look to challenge the conventions of how gins are crafted. Copenhagen is a city that is known for its design, and our Copenhagen Gins follow in that philosophy—both in taste and aesthetic. Whether it’s by experimenting with new flavours or removing extraneous ones, we want all of our Copenhagen Gins to be instantly recognisable and 100% memorable.

CURIOSITY MEETS INNOVATION

Our limited editions are distilled because of our curiosity of what’s possible. Most of them never make it to the bottle, but those who do, are definitely worth the taste.

Aquavit, Akvavit, or Akevitt?

Depending on the aquavit brand, or the region in Scandinavia, the spelling can be different. The designation is a semantic one, however, the legislation around making aquavit is the same across the board. Aquavit is essentially alcohol flavoured with a distillate of dill seed and/or caraway, and then maybe cask matured. It’s beyond this point where aquavit brands start to distinguish themselves. It’s at this point where we let loose and rethink traditions. With our aquavit bringing into being the following collection of unique and fantastic spirits.

Coffee Liqueur with a Latin twist

For our Mexican Coffee Liqueur, we use organic Mexican coffee beans from two different roasts: a very light roast that lends a higher acidity, and a medium-dark roast that catches slightly bitter coffee notes. We combined the coffee distillate with cane sugar, green anise and a touch of grated organic lemon peel that adds a richer experience to any coffee liqueur drink.

RAW, RARE and REFINED

Copenhagen Distillery releases whiskies in three categories. RAW, RARE and REFINED, each with their specific characteristics. 

Go to shop

A bottle that tells the story of the distillery’s journey from making barrel-aged gin while waiting for our whisky to mature.

Local barley, mashed, fermented over 7 days and double-distilled prior to ageing in our original Oak Gin casks from 2017 – the same casks that secured our first Masters' award in the Global Spirit Masters Competition.

Mild summer flowers meet spicy peppery notes followed by bitter almonds and sweet aromas. This is a complex yet well-balanced whisky that requires time. The aftertaste continuously evolves.

The whisky is bottled at 49% ABV.

RARE Edition Batch 2

Single malt

Go to shop

Copenhagen Distillery’s very first batch in the RAW category is a whisky made from both triple and double distilled barley malt, which are the pinnacle of the work of two master distillers.

The whisky has been matured in 100L virgin casks uniquely created for the distillery. The casks are made from Hungarian Oak and are medium toasted. The whisky is made from the highest quality local malts, and has a clean, crisp expression that comes from meticulous distillation processes and virgin casks.

It is remarkably rich in flavour with a fresh floral nose followed by a highly malted and peppery palette accompanied by subtle earthy notes. 

The whisky is bottled in cask strength: 61.1% ABV.

RAW Edition Batch 1

Single malt

First Edition Single Malt Whisky

The original. Copenhagen's first single malt whisky. Innovative, intense, elegant, exquisite. Thoroughly Danish from grain to glass. First Edition Single Malt Whisky was entirely fermented, distilled, and matured in Copenhagen. Each step of traditional production is carefully redesigned to sustain our deeply personal vision. Single malt's every element is refined and intensified. Modern precision boldly supports whisky’s rich history of culture and camaraderie, of people bonding together over impassioned craft. A meticulous distillate of local malted barley, matured in European oak seasoned with inspiration from a traditional Danish beechwood smokehouse. Uncompromising strength balances grace and power. Presented unfiltered in Holmegaard's handcrafted Klukflaske, to express its deep, natural colour.
