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

A very intimate and informative tour. The distillery has been open nine years and is basically family run and constantly improving their product, the process is very hands on, I came away with a much more informed understanding of the process. Having toured the big distillery's (a much more sterile tour) made me really appreciate this tour. I also loved... More

Fancy. There's lots of good wineries in the area, and throughout central Virginia, but a whiskey distillery is a unique thing- don't pass it up, it's a heck of an experience, doesn't take awful long, and you can taste test a variety of fine whiskies.

We really enjoyed our tour of the distillery...Jason was our guide and he is an awesome fount of knowledge regarding distilling spirits. The tour is free, but be prepared to buy a bottle before leaving, once you see and smell the quality you will just have to own a bottle. Copper Fox may become my go to whisky. Dont pass... More

Went here thinking it was something my husband would enjoy. Thought I would just be along for the ride. The owner gave us a personal tour which was very enlightening. Never knew making whiskey was such an art. Especially like the story of the spirits for the angels and how he proposed to his wife. This place is a little... More

I am more of a wine drinker if that, but Copper Fox was recommended by Tom at Killahevlin B&B where we were staying. The young man who gave us the tour was personable as well as informative. Glad I went.

Being from No Virginia sometimes we just slide through Sperryville on our way to/from rides on Skyline drive. Today, we made it our destination. Our Copper Fox tour guide was informative, entertaining and made the whole distilling process interesting. He said that they recently started offering tastings, which were enjoyable. We bought a bottle of their blue top whiskey and... More

Even my wife, who begrudgingly joins me for vineyard tours, found this stop to be interesting and eclectically charming. I guess they only allow tastings for the cool people, because I got to try a finger of single malt and a finger of rye. Seriously, someone needs to ask why they do tastings only sometimes, so TripAdvisees know how to... More

Part of our vacation plans were to visit a few wineries and the Copper Fox Distillery. We did not know what to expect once the barn door opened. Well, the distillery tour was so cool, I hated to leave. We were all impressed with the entire process that occurred behind the wooden door, so much fun. Devon our tour guide... More
