Copper Fox Distillery – Sperryville

A particular passion for whisky.

Founded by Rick Wasmund, with the idea of making whisky differently. The first North American distillery to build a traditional malt floor and kiln since the repeal of Prohibition; located in Sperryville, Virginia since 2005, and Williamsburg, Virginia since 2015. We start from scratch–floor malting our locally grown barley, flavoring the grain with fruitwood smoke, then aging with a progressive series of hand toasted wood chips in used bourbon barrels. Our single batch copper pot still produces one barrel at a time and the spirit is non-chill filtered to preserve the complete flavor and essence of the barley grain.
