Entrance to New Riff Distillery

New Riff is located next door to The Party Source, sharing a parking lot with the adult beverage superstore in Newport, KY. Established in 2014, it just started bottling it’s own bourbons in 2018. It’s name is inspired by the musical term “riff,” implying it’s a new take on an old, established spirit. In addition to being a working distillery and event center, there is a tasting room, and it offers excellent free tours of its facility that end with free tastings of their products.
