We first met Copper Republic Distilling Co at the trade show Whisky Live in Sandton, South Africa. Their founder, Bryce, approached the Rusty Rabbit International stand suggesting we try his spirits which at the time, we politely declined. He said it’s the best thing at the show and our consulting firm founder’s response was simple ‘it can’t be, that’s what we’re serving!’.
At the end of the show, he brought a taster back over to our stand and in short, we had to concede. Our founder tried Copper Republic’s Single Grain, Dual Cask Bourbon Finished Whisky and was blown away.
From there, our founders got talking; Bryce wanted to approach the UK and US markets and that is where our Spirited Journey with Copper Republic began.
