Copper Fox Distillery’s Launching, “Vir” Gin on Thurs., Nov. 7th at Vinoteca

1940 11th Street, NW

From a press release:

“Known for its locally-distilled single malt and rye whiskies, Virginia’s Copper Fox Distillery is expanding into the gin market with its newest product, Vir Gin, launching with a tasting party at U Street’s Vinoteca on Thursday, November 7. Copper Fox owner Rick Wasmund will be on-site from 6-8pm, pouring complimentary tastes of the new gin, while Vinoteca’s mixologist Horus Alvarez will serve up four signature “Vir” Gin cocktails ranging from the classic Aviation to the Gin Rickey, all discounted to $7 for the evening.

Distilled nearby in Sperryville, VA, Vir Gin is Copper Fox’s first non-whisky product and will feature the distinct flavors of Mediterranean juniper, citrus, spice and selected botanicals. Vir Gin is handcrafted from 100% malted barley, tastefully distilled in pot stills resulting in a deep and rich flavor foundation that allows the malt to shine. Though this party will launch the brand’s first batch, seasonal offerings from the distillery garden will uniquely influence each subsequent small batch they produce.”
