Owner description: This is where your new favorite whisky comes from! At Copper Fox Distillery we dedicate ourselves to making great American spirits by emphasizing a combination of innovation and tradition. We start from scratch, floor malting our locally grown barley, flavoring the grain with apple and cherry wood smoke, then aging with a progressive series of hand toasted wood chips in used bourbon barrels. All of our fine spirits are available for tasting and purchase at the distillery. We look forward to seeing you.

We took the tour and made a purchase produced in this one of a kind distillery. Nice drive. Day trip. Plan to visit a few of the many wineries on the way. Also coffee shop and glassworks in town on Rt 211.

Stopped out to take a tour and buy some Whisky. I got both, plus I met a real character in owner Rick Wasmund. Rick makes a unipue Whisky, in that he malts and smokes his own grain for his Spirits. He also has some funny acronyms when describing his 'high-tech' equipment. The tour takes you through all the processes from malting to bottling. For me, the best part of the tour was the barrel room. Here, there is a bunch of Whisky at different stages of aging. It's nice to smell the differences in them. At the end of the tour, he takes you to a small store where you can purchase merchandise and Whisky.
