Copeland Distillery Experience

Copeland Distillery Closed to General Public

We are sorry to say that with the increasing uncertainty around, and the concerns arising from COVID-19, we have taken the decision to close The Copeland Distillery for tours until further notice. As a food-supply business, we must be proactive and not reactive to the situation; we have to look after our staff, supply chain and limit the impact for anyone that would visit us.

As everyone knows who has visited us, we have a small team & any short-term loss to sickness will have a huge impact on our ability to run as a business. As the situation develops, we will keep you updated on our re-opening dates.

If you have a booking that needed to be cancelled as a result of Covid, or have a gift voucher with an expiry date, you will be offered a chance to re-book with us once tours are back up and running. However tour vouchers are non-refundable. Please contact our team at tours@copelanddistillery.com for more information.

We are sorry for any inconvenience & disappointment this has caused, and we look forward to welcoming you back to our Distillery in the future. In the meantime, stay safe & well, and look after each other!

Gareth, CEO, The Copeland Distillery
