At New Riff Distilling they uphold the hallowed Kentucky Regimen with open fermentation, sour mashing, and distillation on grain. The stills are all copper, from their 60-foot column still to their doubler, and the whiskey is aged exclusively in 53-gallon new oak barrels that are toasted and charred, and bottled without chill filtration. The distillery was founded in 2014 by Ken Lewis and Jay Erisman in Newport, Kentucky with a range of Bourbon, Rye, and Gin. The company is independently owned by one family, and that independence has allowed them to produce a quality spirit.

 

We will start the night with a New Riff Old Fashioned rye cocktail. K&L Wines will be in attendance with a discounted sales sheet to promote their two store picks.
