We are very excited to announce that Copper Run Distillery’s, Overproof White Rum was awarded a Gold Medal and Best in Category awards during the American Distilling Institute’s “9th Annual Judging of Craft American Spirits” that took place in Louisville, Kentucky on the 31st of March 2015.


This was the first competition entry for Copper Run Distillery in the past 5 years so we very pleased that our hard work and commitment to producing high quality spirits is being recognized and appreciated but above all we’d like to thank all of you, our fans, for believing in what we do here at Copper Run and for supporting us all these years.

We are especially proud of this award because clear spirits rarely receive Gold medals, so we’d like to thank the judges for bestowing this rare honor to Copper Run.
