Copper Fox Distillery
Copper Fox Distillery Williamsburg is officially open!
The original distillery, located in Sperryville, VA, has been in operation for 11 years under the ownership and guidance of Master Distiller Rick Wasmund. Wasmund learned the craft under the tutelage of Jim McEwan during an internship at Bowmore Distillery in Scotland, and returned shortly thereafter to open Copper Fox Distillery in the Spring of 2005. Copper Fox was the first distillery in the US to floor malt their own barley, a traditional practice that is now only maintained by 6 Scottish distilleries. Their signature spirit is an American Single Malt that features 100% barley from the Northern Neck of Virginia, smoked on site with local apple and cherry woods. Wasmund's Single Malt and the rest of the Copper Fox line of spirits are currently distilled in Sperryville and aged and bottled in Williamsburg. A line of new products will be distilled in the future at Copper Fox Williamsburg. Tours and tastings are available on site!
