Always On The Trail: Fox Trail Distillery
By: NWA Daily
First of its kind in Northwest Arkansas, Fox Trail Distillery distills, ages, and bottles small-batch spirits at its home in Rogers, Arkansas. Inspired by the natural Ozark world around them - as you’ll see in the names - their craft yields a spirit of something just as genuine.
Since opening to the public in April 2019, the home grown distillery goes out of their way to make sure guests have the most memorable experience possible. With their seasonal drink menu, posh vibe, and local food truck there is more than one reason to return. Although they are most known for their whiskeys, as they are a distillery, Fox Trail goes beyond a dark blend.
Offering a variety of whiskeys and spirits, the best way to try what interests you is through one of their tours. They offer two tour options, a spirits tour and a bourbon tour, guided by local personality Sunshine Broder, on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Tours are privately guided at 5p & 7p in groups of 10 or less and guests will get to experience Fox Trail's highly interactive facility, setting the stage for hands-on learning at a conversational pace.
Tour the state-of-the-art distillery and learn about how each Fox Trail spirit is produced. Hear the history of Fox Trail and its future plans. And the best part, the tour ends with a guided tasting flight of either their spirits or whiskey (Ages 21+ only).
The best news, tours are FREE for NWA Daily subscribers in February!
NWA Daily readers through the month of February, can receive a tour and tasting for free. All you have to do is enter NWADaily on their tour booking page HERE.
About The Spirits
Each Fox Trail spirit has its own unique brand name, identity, and bottle. They’ve done a fantastic job developing a four-part series to showcase each of our brands and how they’re produced at the distillery in Rogers.
For the bourbon people: you’ll start with the Wild Parallel bourbon line, an adventurous process that exposes the importance of the barrel for each expression, of which they have three plus a 14 year bourbon:
- Wild Parallel Original Straight Bourbon Whiskey
- Wild Parallel Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Toasted Oak Barrels
- Wild Parallel Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Islay Scotch Barrels, and
- Aged 14 Years O’Highlands Straight Bourbon Whiskey
The spirits: for the folks who enjoy something less dark, this selection of tasting has the most diversity with everything from a gin, to limoncello, to their cold brew liqueur!
- Artanical Gin
- Small Batch Boxley Vodka
- Oak & Bean Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur, and
- An Apertura Lemongrass Limoncello
Make sure to book your tour asap as tours are only offered Friday and Saturday nights and are capped at 20 people. Use the code NWADaily to unlock the free tour!
