“Fun place to tour, even if you aren't a bourbon drinker”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a small distillery that can give you a very personalized look at the bourbon distilling process. They say they are the only place in the U.S. that malt their own barley, which is cool and it gives you a chance to see how it is done. I don't drink whiskey but thought the tour was interesting.

No tastings (likely ABC regulations).

“Tally Ho!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Wonderful drive to get there with a added bonus of civil war spot on a creek. The lady that greeted me at the distillery was wonderful and knew every part of the business guess so she is the mother! The building Iam guessing was a old feed building it was charming and when you open the door it was if the was a invitation with my name on it. Don't miss this one! Added bonus the Rye got 93 or 94 rating can't remember but that is not given very often.

“Totally cool stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Never knew a LICK about whiskey and how it's made. Had the chance to go behind closed doors and watch the actual fermentation process.....They only offer "nosings" and no tastings, but you still get a good idea of the product.

“An informative tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

The Copper Fox is a small family-run distillery. The MOM did a great job on the fun and informative tour. Smelling the unfinished whiskey in the vats was enjoyable. Their commitment to quality was very evident. We purchased the rye whiskey and single malt whiskey.

“Want to know more about how Whiskey is made??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

This is the tour to REALLY learn! I've been to a Scottish distillery, and came away not really understanding the process - they do a GREAT job here!

Oh - and really good product!
