An American distillery that spells whisky without an ‘e’? Yep – you heard right. We are delighted to feature a Single Malt Whisky from the USA.

Whilst some of the Copper Fox distilleries range has made it to our shores – we’re proud to have snatched up the entire Australian allocation of what I think is their most interesting expression.

An American produced, single malt whisky that is lovingly made by hand from local barley that is traditionally floor malted at the distillery.

And a 750ml bottle no less… remember those!!?!!

Our Tasting Notes

Colour: Bright Gold

Nose: A real blast of banana bread at first, with raspberries, citrus and fresh cut grass. A pleasant leathery quality also rears it’s head.

Palate: Peppery with oak and toffee. More wafts of leathergoods and some burnt toast.

Finish: Medium length finish with lots of spice.

  • Bottle Size : 750ml
  • ABV : 50%

An American distillery that spells whisky without an ‘e’? Yep – you heard right. We are delighted to feature a Single Malt Whisky from the USA.  Whilst some of the Copper Fox distilleries range has made it to our shores – we’re proud to have snatched up the entire Australian allocation of what I think is their most interesting expression.

Copper Fox founder Rick Wasmund travelled to Scotland in 2000 to begin his journey as a distiller. An internship at no less then Bowmore instilled traditional values and taught age-old methods to Rick which allowed him to open Copper Fox in 2005. Staying true to traditional methods (double pot-stilled for instance) but not being afraid to incorporate local resources into the fray has allowed Copper Fox to forge it’s own identity with a flavour profile unique in the world of single malt whisky.

Perhaps the signature touch of Copper Fox is the use of apple-wood instead of peat in the drying process. A much gentler smoke than peat.
The other unusual method employed at Copper Fox (unusual in the single malt world) is the use of wood-chips in the ageing process. Apple, oak and cherry wood ‘chips’ are added to the first ageing barrel. This method effectively ‘accelerates’ the wood-aging process by exposing a much greater surface area of wood to the spirit. Sceptics abound – but the Scotch Whisky Research Institute judged a 6-week old sample to be a 7 to 8 year old whisky.

And a 750ml bottle no less… remember those!!?!!

OUR TASTING NOTES

Colour: Rose Gold

Nose: A real blast of banana bread at first, with raspberries, citrus and fresh cut grass. A pleasant leathery quality also rears it’s head.

Palate: Peppery with oak and toffee. More wafts of leathergoods and some burnt toast.

Finish: Medium length finish with lots of spice.

FROM THE DISTILLERS

Our signature single malt, aged with a progressive series of hand toasted, select seasoned, new and used applewood and oak chips inside used bourbon barrels, transferred to a second used bourbon barrel and then finished in used Apple Brandy barrels. This stunning whisky acquires additional depth and multiple layers of flavor attributed to the residual brandy spirits in the wood.

An intriguing whisky, layered and reflecting its careful design.

Color: Rose gold

Nose: Fragrant nose of ripe orchard fruit, candied ginger, fresh sawdust, and damp soil.

Palate: Silky body reveals a palate composed of toasted cinnamon stick, sandalwood, dried apples, lemon zest, and barley sugar.

Finish: Faint white pepper note accompanies a subtle heat that smoulders into a sweet and savoury finish of apple marmalade on freshly toasted bread.
