Rick Wasmund
Founder of Copper Fox Distillery

Rick Wasmund is the founder and Managing Member of Copper Fox Distillery. Inspired by the idea of making whisky differently, Rick transitioned from a career as a Northwestern Mutual Agent and a Certified Financial Planner and launched a start-up distillery, the first North American distillery to build a traditional malt floor and kiln since the repeal of Prohibition, now producing award winning craft whiskies and gin.

Located in Sperryville, Virginia since 2005, and Williamsburg, Virginia since 2015, Copper Fox Distillery starts from scratch-- floor malting their locally grown barley, flavoring the grain with a variety of fruitwood smoke, then aging and finishing with a progressive series of hand toasted wood chips in used bourbon barrels.
