“Fun, Entertaining, and Family Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Even though we had previously been to this distillery 3 years ago, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour again! The tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgable, and the lounge area was perfect for keeping our 2 year old happy and comfortable for a full hour! The tour was free and no tastings are allowed by law, but the gift shop was thouroughly stocked with all their products. It's a must stop for any trip on 211!

“Unexpectedly brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We visited the Copper Fox Distillery as part of a drive along the 211 Wine Route in October. As a few people have said, it looks a bit ramshackle from the outside, but it is well worth stopping by. The tour around the place from one of the owners is one of the best I've ever been on - entertaining and informative. A great overview on how they make whisky and gin. You can't sample their products on site, but having bought a bottle to take home I can promise that their stuff tastes as good as it smells.

“Fun Outing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We got a great tour of the distillery. Don't let the run down appearance of the area put you off. When we got there the arts building was "SHUT" (I guess this is how you say "closed" in rural Virginia). The antiques building locked ramshackle and hard to tell where the door is located. Same with the distillery, but there were signs that were clear about the entrance of the distillery. Their booze is good!

“Very friendly distillery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We were greeted by a lovely labrador dog and a cat curled up in a chair in the very inviting welcome area of the distillery. The owner, Rick Wasmund, immediately took us on an informative and amusing tour. We learned the whole process and he was very helpful and accommodating when we wanted to take photos. The aroma throughout was intoxicatingly mouthwatering but when we completed the tour at the store, no tastings were allowed by law. Despite this, Rick answered all questions and helped a friend with a kit he purchased from the store. We all left with a bottle, mine was opened as soon as I got home and the rye was wonderful. I thoroughly recommend a visit!

“A Delightful Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Don't miss this delightful surprise in Sperryville. We were directed her by our Innkeepers and we were not disappointed. A unique family run distillery with friendly owners and employees. We learned about making whiskey, and were able to purchase some in their store. A great stop on our hiking trip.
