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.

When I find a special place, my first instinct is to tell no one. I don't like fighting crowds when I go again. But then, I also want excellence to stay in business. These distillers know what they're doing, from their whiskey line (pay special...More

Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to review. Not sure which location you visited, but we do offer free tours at both Sperryville and Williamsburg locations. Exactly how much "action" you will see does vary based upon current production schedule.
