"The foundation of our product is Thoroughbred barley from our own private grower and used by no other distillery," says Rick Wasmund, the owner and master distiller at Copper Fox Distillery. Situated along the banks of the Thronton River in Sperryville, Virginia, Copper Fox Distillery was founded in 2000 after Wasmund returned to the United States following an internship at Bowmore Distillery. "Of course I'm proud of our innovations,"adds Wasmund, "but I am keenly aware of the fact that I'm standing on the shoulders of a great many courageous, passionate and brilliant individuals and I try to be ever thankful for the trail they blazed."

Wasmund's Single Malt Whisky is made from Thoroughbred barley developed and grown exclusively for Copper Fox Distillery. Once the barley has been malted at the distillery's malthouse (the distillery is one of only a handful to still malt its own barley), the grains are dried over an apple and cherry wood smoke flame. "This is another first for single malt whisky that adds to the cascade of finishing flavors" says Wasmund. Then, the grains are mashed and fermented before being distilled through a double copper-pot still (the still only produces one barrel of whisky at a time). The single malt whisky is then matured using a patent-pending chip and barrel aging process. "We can only tell you that it involves apple wood, cherry wood and oak chips," says Wasmund, along with "special selection and toasting techniques, and more time and passion than could be expected from a larger operation." Following maturation, the whisky is bottled by hand without the use of chill-filtration.

As a result of this unique maturation process, the whisky has an aroma of barbecue, dried fruits, apples and fall leaves. The aroma gives way to notes of fresh cherries, leafy herbs, malt and vanilla, along with a gentle caramel sweetness. The finish is complex and bold, with touches of marshmallows and whipped cream accented by notes of cinnamon and cloves.

The whisky earned a score of 93 points from the Beverage Testing Institute, which said that it was a "great American single malt with fantastic character, power and style."
