Located at the heart of Chatham’s Historic Naval Dockyard, Copper Rivet Distillery is a family-founded business which has been creating only the finest gin, vodka, whisky and liqueur since its opening in 2016. Situated inside the Grade II listed Pumphouse No5, the distillery and its innovation reflect that of the local craftsmen who once built world-class ships here.

The distillery attracts thousands of visitors a year who can enjoy fascinating gin tours and tastings of delicious Dockyard Gin, Vela Vodka and Son of a Gun Cask Finished Grain Spirit.

For the whisky lover, the distillery’s Masthouse Whisky Blending Experience offers an insight into how the expert distillers craft Masthouse, as well as the opportunity to make your very own signature blend which you get to take home with you.

Cocktail aficionados and amateurs alike will love the Cocktail Masterclass. Learn to stir, muddle, and shake before enjoying your creations in the experience room overlooking the distilling hall.

Opened in 2021, The Pumproom restaurant boasts an impressive dining room and beautiful riverside terrace, making it the perfect setting for delicious food and cocktails all year round.
