After spending 6 months in Scotland working as an apprentice at Bowmore distilleries, Rick Wasmund returned to the U.S. in 2000, full of energy, ideas, and skill, to open up the Copper Fox Distillery in Sperryville, a small village in the Virginia countryside. True to his education he chose to use the Scottish spelling Whisky for his spirits instead of the American Whiskey.
 
The Copper Fox distillery is special for a few reasons. For one, they uniquely use fruitwood peat to dry the malted grain and malted barley—with the smoke of selected, smouldering fruitwoods instead of peat as is done in Scotland. Secondly, they are the only distillery in the U.S. to malt their own grain and barley, in a traditional and “low tech” way. And finally, they use progressive ageing method, where they introduce apple and cherry wood into the barrel to accelerate the ageing and give the Whisky unusual and new flavor dimensions.
 
Wasmund's Copper Fox Rye Whisky is a rye Whiskey, which is double-pot stilled and progressively aged for 12 months using apple wood toasted chips inside a used Bourbon barrel. The mash bill is 66% Virginia Rye, and 33% Virginia Thoroughbred hand-malted barley, kiln dried with apple wood and cherry wood smoke.

Josh,
I'm a bit of a newb but this seemed a little one dimensional.

Seemed under developed. Very overpriced for the quality. Maybe a good for mixing if it was cheaper.
