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

OUR CREATIVE SANDBOX

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.

COLLABORATION WITH 451 SPIRITS

Tasting Notes: coffee beans, cherry, almond, vanilla, oak
Bottles: 205
The Story: Sometimes experiments get made, set aside, and are forgotten.

 

In the case of 451 Spirits, one of their earliest experiments was brandy from extra wine made by a local winery. Half was set aside in a barrel that previously held Dear Johnny, their smoked whiskey, and half was placed in an ex-whiskey barrel and spiked with staves from a barrel that previously held mead. These barrels were set aside for more than five years before they were re-discovered.

On the Echo Spirits side, in the spring of 2020, we ramped up production to make hand sanitizer for the community. Aged for 16 months in a small barrel that once held sorghum whiskey, our contribution to this blend comes from a few gallons of distilled wine we set aside during that hectic time.

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 crafted by High Bank's Adam Hines, winner of the Best American Blended Whiskey at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, it highlights all of the best qualities of its comprising spirits.

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.
