About Copeland Distillery


After nine months construction, we opened the doors of the new Copeland Distillery in August 2019,
signalling the start of our journey to create Northern Ireland’s most innovative craft distillery. Our 6,500
square-foot home is located just a stone’s throw from the historic harbour in Donaghadee, County Down,
revitalising the former cinema and Ards bottling Company site which lay unoccupied for more than 20
years. Our 125-year lease is a signal of our commitment to Donaghadee and our ambition to share the
area’s rich maritime and distilling history with domestic and international visitors. The Distillery is the
production site of our award winning Classic Irish and Navy Strength gins, our rum range and our new range
of malt and pot-still whiskey which are currently maturing prior to release from 2024. Our mission is
simple: to create great tasting spirits which surprise and delight, and reflect the history and traditions of the
local area.
