We had been there before and wanted to visit again. We drove up to the building and the building was closed. One of the employees at Copper Fox distillery said the owner closed the building. He wasn't sure where they relocated to.

There aren't that many things to do in the area, so we stopped in here. They didn't have anything that we would have wanted to buy.

Great place to see and buy local art from pottery to photography. A nice restaurant located inside and antique store and whiskey distillery nearby. Fun destination to hit on your travels around rural Virginia.
