Lovely and passionate people fill the Copper Fox Distillery and provide regular tours that really put you in the middle of their whisky distilling process. Having gone on a handful of brewery and distillery tours before, this was one of my favorites because of the serene setting around the distillery and the clearly thoughtful way they approach their craft. Oh,... More

I'm a lover of Bourbon and Whiskey -- my wife is not -- however we both loved our visit to Copper Fox Distillery. During the weekend they run tours every half-hour by folks who actually work there and know a lot about how to make some seriously good tasting stuff! Copper Fox is a small hand-crafted distillery -- so you... More

My wife and I visited Copper Fox Distillery in Sperryville, Virginia. We were warmly greeted by the smiling staff. We had a very interesting tour of the facility, with all that malt and barley, we do understand why they have two cats to keep the rodents away! The smell of apple wood roasted malt is great. We tasted the 1797... More

You will see (for FREE) the whole cycle of production in this distillery. Small enough to feel intimate, but large enough that you are not feeling like you are in someone's house. Handful of employees, laid back, will explain as much as you are curious to learn. See the barley malting, smoking room, stills, vats, barrels. Tasting (cost there) and... More

We toured Copperfox one weekend while visiting Luray. The tour was around 45 mins. We didn't know a lot about whiskey distilling and the tour information was a little over our heads but it was still cool to see the process. The folks running the place are very nice and answered all of our questions. There is a taking for... More

My wife and I visited The Copper Fox and had a great time. The free tour was excellent. The man giving the tour did a great job explaining to us just how they make their whiskey. Their Rye whiskey is fantastic and I love the Gin that they also make.

This family-owned and operated distillery is worth a stop. The tour is fun and educational. Love the whiskey and gin. Very high quality.

We just happened upon this distillery on our way to a winery. What luck! We had a great tour - learned a lot about the distilling process and asked A LOT of questions which were all answered (some with a lot of humor!). There is a tasting available at the end (minor fee) and it was worth it. I actually... More

We first visited Copper Fox 6 years ago and almost did not stop as it was out in the middle of no where. Returning to the area to visit some wineries, we decided to try to find again. We were pleasantly surprised that it has added a few businesses around it, like a art shop, antique shop and Mexican Cantina.... More
