Copper Fox Williamsburg Distillery

Copper Fox currently has two facilities. Their original distillery - Copper Fox Sperryville Distillery - is located in Sperryville, VA, which has been up and running for 11 years with Master Distiller Rick Wasmund at the helm.

Wasmund was mentored by Jim McEwan during his internship at Bowmore Distillery in Scotland, returning shortly after to open the Copper Fox Distillery in the Spring of 2005.

Prior to his stay in Scotland, Wasmund visited several American distilleries before traveling Islay in 2000 interning at one of the few distilleries in the world that still malts their own barley.

Copper Fox’s second distillery in Williamsburg opened their doors in July of 2016. Copper Fox utilizes a progressive aging method, where they introduce toasted apple and oak into the barrel to accelerate the maturation process, giving the Whiskey distinctive, new flavor dimensions.

Copper Fox Whiskeys are double distilled using a fire copper technique, directly firing their still to create flavors that would otherwise be left out in a steam-jacketed distillation.

Copper Fox was the first distillery in the US to floor malt their own barley, a traditional practice practiced by Scottish distilleries.

Copper Fox malts their barley, smokes their grain and the wood chips for the maturation process before distilling their American Single Malt featuring 100% barley from the Northern Neck of Virginia.
