Wasmund's Single Malt Whisky

Distilled in Copper Fox in Virginia, Wasmund's Single Malt Whisky is made out of 100% Locally sourced barley.

Copper Fox distillery was the result of an idea of Rick Wasmund on how  could he make a distinct and wonderful whisky by using special fruitwood peat, and fruitwood barrels in a traditional whisky making process.

It combines the best of the grand tradition with creative and unique innovations using apple and cherry wood smoke to flavour the floor malted barley. The single batch copper pot-still produces one barrel at a time and the spirit is non-chill filtered to preserve the complete flavour and essence of the barley grain.

Reduced to 62% abv by the addition of their own calcium rich well water.
The whisky is then matured twice in used bourbon barrels.

The first barrel has a trap door through which an infusion of apple wood chips and oak is effected for 18 months. It is then left in the second barrel for 24 months.
The Wasmund's Single Malt discerns notes of calvados and a sweet nuttiness.
