Copper & Kings American Brandy Company makes a dynamic American style brandy. We do not make derivative brandy. We make a differentiated, uncommon, unadulterated pure pot-distilled natural American Brandy. Distilled in our three American copper pot stills named Isis, Magdalena and Sara then matured in used bourbon barrels. Our signature house style is a little feisty, rambunctious with a long smooth finish (just like America).Schedule a Distillery Tour

Sonic Aging – A Little Bit of Rock n’ Roll

Copper & Kings American Brandy - Co-Founder Joe Heron Sub-WooferWe’ve built our love of music across the company – our name is meant to sound like a band (think Kings of Leon, Shovels & Rope, Band Of Horses, Iron & Wine). Just like our copper pot stills that are all named after Bob Dylan songs our barrels are all rocked with music.

We pulse (a bass note in particular) music through the cellar. The alcohol molecule being less dense than a water molecule starts to move away from the pulse, and collide with other alcohol molecules inside the barrels which eventually collide with the barrel wall, they slide up the wall, which starts to create a “distillate wave” inside the barrel resulting in increased frequency of contact over time between the distillate with the barrel walls and in our opinion enhances maturation.

And at the very least, happy brandy makes for happy drinking. Aged in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. Matured with rock ‘n roll.

We have 3 beautiful copper stills, all named after women in Bob Dylan songs – all songs appear on the Dylan album “Desire” – this is a deliberate lyrical reference for brandy (brandy is inherently sexy, it is viscous and rhythmic, it is power and grace, it is smooth with a punch, it is the velvet glove).

Isis: 1,000 gallons. Big, bold and robust distillate. Isis is the Egyptian Goddess Of Fertility.

“I married Isis on the fifth day of May
But I could not hold on to her very long
So I cut off my hair and I rode straight away
For the wild unknown country where I could not go wrong”.

Magdalena: 750 gallons.  Elegant, full of character, lovely polish in terms of distillate. The song is Romance In Durango.

“Hot chili peppers in the blistering sun
Dust on my face and my cape
Me and Magdalena on the run
I think this time we shall escape.”

Sara: 50 gallons. Sara is a mirror image of Magdalena in all ways. She is small, gorgeous and makes the prettiest, refined distillate.  She is named for Bob Dylan’s second wife.

“Sara, Sara
Sweet virgin angel, sweet love of my life
Sara, Sara
Radiant jewel, mystical wife.”

Copper & Kings brandies are exclusively double-distilled, and our aspiration is minimal intervention beyond spirit and barrel maturation.
