Empirical Dock House

As summer is approaching and Copenhagen is slowly reopening, we are delighted to bring back our pop-up bar Empirical Dock House from May 20th to August 31st. 

We’ve put the final touch to our little shack at the end of the pier and are excited to welcome you back in Refshaleøen. 

Our vision for the space is a summer expression of our Tasting Room where we can showcase a more exploratory side of what happens inside of the distillery. 

It will be a place of easygoing enjoyment, with a family-friendly and industry-friendly environment. Simple good times, the summer destination you always go back to.

We are looking forward to welcoming you, catching up and fueling you with Empirical love while following the governmental restrictions.


Thursday May 20th - Tuesday August 31st

Monday - Friday: 3pm - 9 pm

Saturday - Sunday: 12pm - 9pm


The bar is very well located in Refshaleøen, a 5 minute walk from our distillery, between La Banchina and Amass, on the way to Reffen. Follow the signs from the bus stop or around Refshaleøen.
