Rick Wasmund is the founder and Managing Member of Copper Fox Distillery (CFDE);

the first North American distillery to build a traditional malt floor and kiln since the repeal of Prohibition. The Sperryville distillery, located at 9 River Lane since 2005, is housed in a rustic converted cider mill in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains just 7 miles from the Thornton River Gap entrance to Shenandoah National Park. 

With a growing need for additional malting, distilling and storage capacity, he purchased the former Lord Paget Motor Inn complex from the City of Williamsburg in March 2015.

Award winning craft whiskies and gin: hand-malted locally grown barley, uniquely smoked and aged with American fruitwoods. We invite you to tour, taste and experience the flavor journey that never ends.
