Copper Fox Distillery

Copper Fox Distillery was founded by Rick Wasmund, with the idea of making whisky differently. Our first location in Sperryville since 2005, and in Williamsburg since 2015, our newest venture sprawls across an historic 6-acre plot that previously hosted the Lord Paget Motel. At both locations, we start from scratch--floor malting our locally grown barley, flavoring the grain with fruitwood smoke in our kiln, distilling in one of our custom copper pot stills, then aging with a progressive series of hand toasted wood chips in used bourbon barrels.  Free tours on the half hour. Whisky Flights, Tastings and seasonal cocktails for a small fee.
