The Story of
Our story begins in 2018 with an idea to distill quality spirits inside hand made copper stills using unique botanicals that are indigenous to our South West Australian region. Through testing, compounding and sampling, Cuprum Distillery is on the way to creating the Spirit of the South West.
Copper stills are renowned as the finest method for producing excellent spirits. This is how we devised the name ‘Cuprum Distillery’ with Cuprum being the Latin word for copper, and CU is the chemical element for copper and 29 is the atomic number (hence our logo features CU29)
To get a deeper understanding of copper and to create the finest spirits, Cuprum Distillery engaged a local artisan to hand craft each and every one of our copper Alembic stills.
Our passion for using local products has been heightened by the region we live in. Cuprum Distillery is situated in Bunbury, Western Australia, known as the city of three waters – the rumbling surf of the Indian Ocean to the west, the calm waters of Koombana Bay and the tranquil Leschenault Inlet, all steeped in a rich pioneer and nautical history.
Our spirits are finely crafted harnessing the pure clean waters of the region and abundant native botanicals, using our beautiful rural isolation set on the shore of the Indian ocean and protected by the hills and valleys of the region instilling a strong sense of the best the region can offer to our distillation.
