We toured the old distillery, sampled their whiskeys and had some great cocktails. Fun afternoon with the family. Our teenaged grandson, who is not old enough to drink, learned a good deal about how whiskeys are made

We're glad you enjoyed your visit. Kids of all ages who visit can learn a bit about a bit about agriculture, science and math! Thanks for taking the time to review.

Worth a visit. Very rustic place but really friendly and great whiskey. You can try a selection so can choose your favourite before you buy a bottle. Also, right opposite a good micro brewery so you can enjoy them both.

We were visiting Pen Druid...Copper Fox right next door...give it a shot... WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! We learned so much about a process we knew nothing about. Great to taste and see an American company making a high quality whiskey. Visit the stream out back...pure Virginia!
