THE STORY OF CUPRUM DISTILLERY
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.
Cuprum Distillery began as a shed located in the regional city of Bunbury, Western Australia with the aim of creating craft, small batch spirits such as Gin, Whisky, Rum and a series of liqueurs.
Owners Mike Honeybell and Stewart Binnie renovated the building and designed the distillery themselves by using natural materials along with recycled steel and copper. Together, with Stewarts son Rory, the building has been transformed into a craft distillery with an old school whisky bar vibe.
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.
