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.

“Perfect little tour”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

The distillery does tours on the hour from 10-6, but call ahead to double-check it's on. It was just the two of us on a 4 pm tour on a Friday for about 20 or 30 minutes, but what a great experience seeing the whole process from bags of grains through sprouting, smoking, fermenting, distilling, casking and bottling. Perfect if you're interested in the science behind the scenes and would probably be very good for families with kids age 10+ or so. The tour is free, but you'll feel compelled to purchase at least one bottle of whiskey ... and they start at about $22.

“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.
