News: Cooper King Distillery Founders Club Now Open

Cooper King Distillery’s Founders’ Club has launched and offers members of the public a rare chance to shape the future of England’s newest whisky distillery. The Founders’ Club calls on whisky and gin enthusiasts to become a founding member of the distillery. In return, members will be rewarded with first-release products, distillery merchandise and lifetime membership.

Notable benefits include the chance to own highly collectable Inaugural Release whisky from cask #001, limited edition individually-numbered bottles of Founders’ Gin, and exclusive access to new small-batch releases ahead of the general public. There are only a very limited number of memberships available and once they’re gone, they’re gone, so those who are interested are encouraged to act quickly to secure their place.

Cooper King Distillery, based in York, is the exciting venture for former scientist, Abbie and architect, Chris. In 2014, a desire to leave the rat race led them across the globe to Australia, in search of sun, sand and adventure. Inspired by the ingenuity and determination of the Tasmanian whisky distillers and compelled by a love of good whisky, the young team made it their mission to bring their ethos back home and set up a truly independent craft distillery in Yorkshire. The couple will mash, ferment, distil, age and bottle the single malt whisky all under one roof, making them one of only a few English distilleries to do so.

The Cooper King Distillery Founders’ Club offers craft spirit lovers a unique opportunity to become part of the Cooper King story and help make English distilling history. Membership start from £30, which is ideal for a gift, through to more established memberships which include having your name on the Founders’ Plaque in the distillery.

The capital raised by the Founders’ Club will give the young distillery the funds it needs to fire up the stills and get the spirit flowing later this year.

In keeping with the distillery’s sustainability ethos they’ll plant a tree through the Carbon Fund for every membership sold. They will also be one of only a handful of distilleries in the world to run on 100% green energy.


Founder Chris said, “we make spirits for those who value craftsmanship, honesty and adventure. This is your chance to support us and join in the adventure from the very beginning. Head to to see the full range of Founders’ Club rewards”.
