A delightful and powerful Single Barrel release with a surprisingly complex, award-winning palate.

Ken Lewis has been selling Spirits for more than thirty years. He owned and ran one of the most successful retail stores in the country — The Party Source in Bellevue, Kentucky. He sold the company to his employees in 2014 and used the funds to launch New Riff Distillery with co-founder Jay Erisman in Newport that same year — just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio. As head distiller Brian Sprance was distilling Spirits and laying down casks for aging, they sourced Spirits from MGP in Indiana and sold them under the O.K.I. brand (now retired). They are now releasing their own complete line of house-crafted Spirits and are an official stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.

When you are a Bourbon-lover and want flavorful expressions of character you choose Single Barrel releases. New Riff Single Barrel Bourbon is the rare example of delicious character with consistency where in counts — in quality. And that takes quite a bit of skill. It all starts with New Riff’s core Bourbon recipe and a mash bill of 65% corn, 30% Rye, and 5% malted barley that are certified 100% non-GMO. It’s aged four years, bottled at a barrel-proof of 55% ABV, and is another Double-Gold winning dram.

Appearance / Color
Warm Mahogany.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is classic high-rye Bourbon with notes of caramel and baking spices with touches of vanilla and menthol.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is surprisingly complex with sweet vanilla and mint at first followed by glowing Rye spices from clove and cinnamon to black pepper and back again.

Finish
The finish is long and rambling from pops of cinnamon to sweet after-burn.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
