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.

Darcy handled our tasting - she was funny and made he best whiskey sour I’ve ever tasted - made our visit a great experience! They also have a beautiful view out back where you can hang out with a cocktail. We will be back!

Our guide started his presentation with "I'm not a tour guide, I'm a distiller". In other words, he's the guy who normally does the work. Clearly he knew all the details, and was able to answer every question. Our group had 6 people, so we...More

When I find a special place, my first instinct is to tell no one. I don't like fighting crowds when I go again. But then, I also want excellence to stay in business. These distillers know what they're doing, from their whiskey line (pay special...More

Stopped by during a winery visit trip with friends. Wasn't disappointed. Soon they'll have a bit more age on their spirits which will help. However, the products are pretty tasty as they presently are.. Didn't seem like there was an operational tour (which was fine...More

Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to review. Not sure which location you visited, but we do offer free tours at both Sperryville and Williamsburg locations. Exactly how much "action" you will see does vary based upon current production schedule.

The free tour was friendly, informative and fun. Darcy was a great tour guide and server for the tasting. The whiskey and gin were a hit!
