:: The Copper Fox Distillery :: Home of Wasmund's Whisky

3 people. Smoked fruitwood chip aged (patent pending claims). Single barrel batches. It seems Mr. Wasmund went to Scotland to learn about the origination of Whisky (no 'e') and got himself a fancy internship. He had some good ideas about embedding more flavor profile into a product that included fruitwood but also characteristics of peat like Scotch. Instead of using a peated smoke, the idea was to use smoke from the fruitwood - similar to that which is done to smoke a nice pork roast. One of the products is Copper Fox Rye Whisky.

Our latest way of "shaking up" the whisky world. A remarkable rye whisky made with an extraordinarily generous amount of our smoked malt. The mash bill is 2/3 Virginia rye and 1/3 Virginia Thoroughbred hand-malted barley—kiln dried with apple wood and cherry wood smoke.

Double pot-stilled to between 150 and 160 proof and aged with a progressive series of new and used apple wood and oak chips inside used bourbon barrels. Our innovative aging process results in a truly unique rye whisky that is savory and complex with the characteristic Wasmund's finish.
