Yes, I gladly admit; I enjoy a good whiskey. That’s also why it was such a great pleasure to get a first-hand insight into whiskey production at the small family-driven Copper Fox Distillary in Sperryville, Virginia, yesterday. This distillary is the result of a man following his dream and capitalising on its hometowns strength in quality apple trees. His small-batch, hand-made whiskey differs from others as the first applewood chip-aged whiskey in the world. I’ve been to large distillaries and breweires earlier, but for us who know whiskey largely as end-consumers, a micro distillery offer the opportunity to study and learn the processes far better than the giants.
