Overview

This is where your new favorite whisky comes from! At Copper Fox Distillery we dedicate ourselves to making great American spirits by emphasizing a combination of innovation and tradition. We start from scratch, floor malting our locally grown barley, flavoring the grain with apple and cherry wood smoke, then aging with a progressive series of hand toasted wood chips in used bourbon barrels. All of our fine spirits are available for tasting and purchase at the distillery. We look forward to seeing you.

Went by this great distilled and surrounding shops with friends who live locally. Their gin is awesome and owners/staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Get a tasting so you can pick your favorite spirit.
