Ozark Mountain Moonshine

Copper Run’s Ozark Mountain Moonshine un-aged spirit comes straight from the still immediately winning awards and public recognition.  ‘Moonshine’ is shifting from a word describing an illegal distilled spirit to being recognized as a process historically known to us here in the Ozarks.

This repressed art is giving rise to a new avenue of study and expertise.  Distilled spirits were the first domestic product taxed as America was forming, thus creating a long history of secrecy as means to survive.  We at Copper Run are grateful to finally have a platform to openly explore and educate the artisan knowledge of our ancestors.

Our flavor captures all the smooth complexity from the earthy root through the citrus green to the buttery sweetness of the corn kernel.  Hints of delicate caramel malted tones float in the taste created from our 20 percent wheat mash blend. We believe our flavor is true to what our great grandparents would have savored.

Small Batch Spirit Whiskey

This young whiskey presents a balance of toasted oak and hints of vanilla and caramel flavors blended with sweet corn and wheat undertones that finish with a ripe banana flavor.

Our aged whiskey rests patiently in charred white oak barrels made here in the Ozarks, a long time tradition.

The process of barrel charring offers our whiskey its deep amber color and contributes the vanilla, caramel, toffee and burned marshmallow flavors to our spirit whiskey.

The aging period in a barrel allows the young spirit to mellow and gain the smooth character that should be savored slowly neat or over ice.

Product Details: Bottle: 750ml, Strength: 60% alc/vol. (120 proof)

Island Gold Rum

Island Gold Rum is our robust distilled spirit made from blackstrap molasses.  The Ozarks has a historical connection to molasses as a supplement due to its nutritional value as well as its pungent sweet flavor.

The molasses embodies a energetic powerful aroma that creates a full mouthed experience when drinking this spirit.  Lingering hints of raisin can be detected from the barrels we use.  Our barrels have a romantic history of once having dwelled in France storing wine before sojourning to Stone Hill Winery in Herman, Missouri where they resided aging cream sherry until finally making their way on yet another venture emitting character into our rum.

Our carefully slow cooked processing creates a gold rum that can and perhaps should be slowly sipped and savored. We commonly hear from our visitors that they never really liked rum until they tasted Copper Run Rum.
