Book a Tour or Experience


Whether you're making the trip to Newport or trusting our distillers with the choice, there's a perfect barrel for everybody.

The Single Barrel
Selection Experience

New Riff offers a robust Single Barrel Program where you will get to personally select your own one-of-a-kind barrel. Selections are bottled at barrel proof without chill filtration, allowing all the characteristics of the barrel to shine through. No two barrels are the same, each creating their own story. Each bottle will be customized with your personal label. Half and quarter barrels are also available.

At New Riff we pride ourselves in creating an educational and engaging Barrel Selection experience every bit as singular as the barrel you are about to pick. If you purchase a Single Barrel bourbon you have the option, at no additional charge, of selecting your barrel of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey nestled in our turn of the century tasting room located among the thousands of aging barrels at our West Newport Warehouse Campus.

Our Single Barrel Ambassador will lead you on a thorough and exciting experience starting with a tour of our Rickhouses, Bottling Hall, and entire warehouse campus. From there our hand selected Single Barrels await your consideration. You’ll have the opportunity to read the brief descriptions of what our sensory panel has identified as the singular characteristics of each barrel you will be tasting.

Once in our beautiful, historic tasting room, which dates back to 1903, we’ll discuss Bourbon tasting techniques before conducting your own sensory evaluation of your chosen barrels. Swirl! Nose! Taste! Lightly dilute! Nose! Taste! Debate! Ponder! Select your very own New Riff KY Straight Bourbon Whiskey – cheers!
