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

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.
