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.

In addition to learning how spirits are made, it is just a fun to tour, great guys to meet and fun to see a successful small business.

“Hand made whiskey up close and personal”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

Tiny distillery, very personal tour given by the mother of the owner - well worth the stop and a chance to purchase unique products not found everywhere. If one is interested in whiskey and want to see a true small batch distillery, do not miss.

“Who knewyou could make top notch whiskey in Virginia”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

This was a fun visit. You enter by ringing a bell on a massive door and enter a large building filled with smokey smells and the distinct smell of whiskey. They give a tour several times a day. They walk you through the acquisition of the specially grown grains from the Northern Neck of Virginia to their unique method of getting the grain to sprout and then smoking it. Fascinating!

The distilling process and bottling is a also unique. I was impressed that they export this to the UK. You can also purchase either Scotch, Bourbon or whiskey to take home.
