Ask for Cooper's Chase by Name !
Doug Throener of West Point, NE and James Brozek of Norfolk, NE started this business in the fall of 2009 with one simple goal, to create the best tasting spirits that they could and beat premium spirits in blind tastings and still kept affordable pricing to the customer. Home of Cooper's Chase Vodka, we believe the quality of the grain grown locally along with pure clean ground water gives our products a huge advantage in our venture. Also most of the work is done by family members who give that "little extra" to make products worthy of having Cooper's Chase logo placed on them. In March of 2013 Doug Throener became the sole owner of Cooper's Chase due to James Brozek's retirement. His legacy will always be the foundation of the distillery. Cooper's Chase, which is Nebraska's first federal and state licensed distillery, has goals of producing vodka, bourbon, rye, blended whiskey, and rum.  


In the winter of 2014, Cooper's Chase went through a major logo change and now depicts what Doug does for a day job, which is being involved in the cattle business.We pride ourselves being accessible to our customers.Visiting all parts of the midwest, hands on with customers is what Cooper's Chase enjoys best. Simply placing a bottle on a store shelf doesn't mean it will sell, we have to tell our story everyday. We cover over 400 miles a week but we truly believe that our customers are gained 1 bottle at a time.Cooper's Chase is very proud of our loyal customers and they inspire us in every decision that is made for the company.We will have new products coming, but patience is a must in distilling.Cooper's Chase will not put just anything out there.

Cooper's Chase,the distillery is located in a building, on Throener's farm southeast of West Point. Doug Throener emphasized the fact their distillery is located in the greatest grain growing region in the world, as good grain is the essence of a good spirits.

The equipment required for this kind of venture is not easily obtained, and when found, is fairly expensive. Using good old Nebraska ingenuity, the 2 founding members have built most of their equipment. An example of this is a one hundred gallon still, which Doug calls a "hybrid", it has the look of a pot still, but can function equally as well as a column still. A pot still is generally used to produce whiskey, brandy, and bourbons that must retain much of the original mash flavor, where as a column still is used to produce grain spirits, such as vodka and gin, where a higher percentage of alcohol is required during distillation.
