After hiking Old Rag, a visit to Copper Fox was the perfect way to round out the day. We were warmly greeted after ringing the bell to gain access to the distillery. Our tour guide was knowledge and passionate about whiskey. Although this is 'quick whiskey', aged quicker by putting wood chips into the barrels, it is still enjoyable. Above... More

Small Family owned distillery. Great tour because your guide also works there so you get to find out how things are done by those doing it. The grain is malted the old fashioned way, by hand; and the result is also really good. They make single malt and rye whiskey along with a unique tasting gin. This our second visit... More

Copper Fox is a local distillery that I have been going to since they've opened, the atmosphere is warm and cozy with malted barley filling the air. It's actually one of my favorite places on earth because they make my all time favorite whisky. 8$ tastings and a fun tour, along with a gorgeous view of the rappahannock river. It's... More

We dropped in because we saw the signs from the road and enjoyed a lovely tour and whisky tasting ($8 for the tasting of three whiskies). We had a 3.5 year-old with us, and the tour guide was really patient and engaged with him, and really helped him to enjoy the 30 minute tour. This is a proper small-scale distillery,... More

Tour: Free Tasting: $8 Bottles of whisky are sold on site for $45-$95 ($95 for the specialty, port cask finish) Having been to Scotland for a month, going to some 17 distilleries, whisky has become one of my favorite things. I had never really gone on an american distillery tour , so I did not expect too too much (we... More

Comprehensive tour from raw grain in to Whisky out! Tour through active distillery and enjoy the sights sound and wonderful smells of Whisky production. The tour is free and the tasting is only $8 and well worth it!
