The newest of the distilleries in this region is actually a second location for Copper Fox Distillery. Located in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg on what was formerly the Lord Paget Motor Lodge, this location plans to quadruple the production volume of their original Sperryville location. Each building on the property is designated for a specific purpose in the distilling process, including a malt house. Copper Fox is the only Virginia distillery that malts all of their own barley, which comes from Virginia farms. The hand-malted Virginia barley is the base grain used in all of the Copper Fox’s products, including a gin, an American rye whisky and a American single malt. Currently producing limited quantities of spirits at this location, their focus is primarily on renovating the property with great intention, and introducing customers to their hand-crafted malted barley offerings. Though the distillery is in the throws of renovations, Copper Fox Williamsburg is open for business, tastings and tours!
