Grain to Glass

Join New Riff’s co-founder Jay Erisman as he leads an intimate tasting experience from “Grain to Glass”!
The guided experience begins with a brief tour of New Riff’s still tower and the unique opportunity to taste New Make right off the still. The tasting continues with a sample of one of our whiskies at 2 years old and a discussion of how whiskey evolves in the barrel while tasting our flagship 4 year old Bottled In Bond Bourbon and Rye. Finish with a sample of older whiskey (6 years or more!), something currently not on the market.
The tasting also includes $20 off a purchase of $40 or more in New Riff’s gift shop.
