Copper Fox Distillery

Copper Fox Distillery


Copper Fox Distillery, was founded by Rick Wasmund, with the idea of making whisky differently. The first North American distillery to build a traditional malt floor and kiln since the repeal of Prohibition. We start from scratch--floor malting our locally grown barley, flavoring the grain with fruitwood smoke in our kiln, distilling in one of our custom copper pot stills, then aging with a progressive series of hand toasted wood chips in used bourbon barrels. 

Our on-site offerings include Copper Fox Original Single Malt Whisky, Copper Fox Peachwood Single Malt Whisky, Copper Fox Rye Whisky, Copper Fox Vir Gin, Copper Fox Barrel Kits and “Distiller’s Art Series” Single Malt Spirit, Rye Spirit and Bourbon Mash,  Belle Grove 1797 Whiskey and Belle Grove 1797 Spirit and several “distillery only” seasonal or limited edition whiskies. 

Tours & Tastings:

We hope you can plan to visit and maybe discover your new favorite whisky! We do some things differently than anyone else in the world, and enjoy sharing our story.  Free tours on the half hour. Tastings and seasonal cocktails for a small fee. Family friendly. Well behaved leashed pets OK on the porch or cocktail garden.
