THE COPPER LABEL SERIES

The Echo Spirits Copper Label Series is our creative outlet. Whether we're distilling something ourselves or teaming up with someone else, we're putting out something we've never made before. All Copper Label editions are limited release and unlikely to ever be made again, so grab them from our Spirit Shop while they're hot!

OUR CREATIVE SANDBOX

Limited release

We built Echo Spirits to be a creative outlet for ourselves during a time when we were stuck in jobs that we didn't find to be creatively fulfilling. Sure enough, it has provided that outlet, but as we start to grow and mature as a company, we're starting to get a bit more locked in. We have our core lineup fairly set and we didn't want to be a company that has dozens of primary products and no one ever knows what's in stock or what's going to be available in a week. The horizon started to look a bit more dim and repetitive.

Enter the Copper Label Series to save the day. This is our creative outlet. One-offs, experiments, and collaborations. Truly, this is why we got into the business. We are passionate about everything we distill, but if you had to ask us WHY we do what we do, it's to do creative, fun things with creative, fun people.

We hope you enjoy drinking these as much as we enjoy making them.

THE FORGOTTEN BRANDIES

THE FORGOTTEN BRANDIES

COLLABORATION WITH 451 SPIRITS

Released: October 6, 2021
Type: Brandy
Strength: 100 proof/50% ABV
Tasting Notes: coffee beans, cherry, almond, vanilla, oak
Bottles: 205

The Story: Sometimes experiments get made, set aside, and are forgotten.

 

One of the earliest experiments by 451 Spirits was brandy from a local-produced wine. Half was aged in a smoked whiskey barrel and half was aged in a whiskey barrel spiked with staves soaked in mead. These were set aside for more than five years before being re-discovered.

In the spring of 2020, we began our own experiments, distilling wine and aging for 16 months in a barrel that once held sorghum whiskey.

Over a drink in the summer of 2021, Chad, Joe, and Nikhil discovered that we each had a similar experiment going and decided to team up for a blend. The Forgotten Brandies is the result of that friendship, which is the FIRST known co-released spirit between multiple distilleries in Ohio.

The Story: THE INAGURAL WHISKEY BLEND FOR THE OHIO DISTILLER'S GUILD.

 

In the spring of 2021, members of the Ohio Distiller's Guild had the idea to create a blended whiskey to raise money for the Guild. Comprised of single barrel selections from all four participating distilleries and blended by High Bank's Adam Hines, it highlights all of the best qualities of each spirit.

30% Watershed Distillery Bourbon
30% High Bank Distillery Whiskey War
20% Middle West Spirits Straight Wheat Whiskey
20% Echo Spirits Distilling Co. Straight Rye Whiskey

Launched as a part of the inaugural Ohio Craft Whiskey Festival, this blend is truly unique and could never be replicated.

The Story: a celebration of the end of an era

 

One of the many business casualties of the COVID-19 pandemic was the brew-on-premise operation at North High Brewing. For nearly a decade, the citizens of Columbus had enjoyed brewing their own beer under the watchful eye of a North High brewmaster.

Ever the experimenters, we joined up with the North High team, taking the leftover malts and creating a unique whiskey, full of wheat and chocolate notes and reminiscent of springtime in Munich. A beautiful creation to celebrate the end of an era.
