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.

Just outside the center of Sperryville, this place is a hoot! Looks like an old "hooch" farm, but what goes around comes around, and now that means a very well-thought out barley based operation making excellent local hand-crafted whiskey. We tried the $8 each tasting...More
