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!

Tasted some of there rye a year ago and have been looking forward to a visit. Very friendly staff which offered a tour of the distillery and their process. The men had a tasting while the ladies strolled around. The malts and r yes are excellent. They make a bourbon style whiskey but can't call it bourbon yet. Very fun... More

I already knew Copper Fox made fantastic rye (including some aged in port barrels!), but I didn't know they made American Single Malts and gins. The tour is free and fantastic and eight bucks will get you a tasting flight that's well worth it. A+

Jason was a great tour guide, love seeing how barley was changed into whiskey. Whiskey was good but Gin was great.

We popped in to buy a bottle of whiskey to take home and didn't have time to do the tour. I can't speak for the tour, etc., but that whisky is some of the smoothest I've ever drank. I highly recommend it!
