The Copperfield gin is distilled using power provided by our fuel cell which produces electricity from hydrogen; by combining hydrogen with oxygen from the air the fuel cell produces energy and water with no direct emissions.
We source the hydrogen used from a supplier that generates it using renewable power - so called green hydrogen.
The Surrey Copper Distillery produces its gin in batches. The batch distillation uses steam to enable the process. The AFC Energy fuel cell provides the power to create the steam for this distillation.
The steam boiler, that’s normally powered by the electricity mains, uses our fuel cell to provide the power instead.
