Newport distillery announces $12M expansion


New Riff, Kentucky’s largest craft distillery, is halfway through its anticipated four-year bourbon aging process and has currently announced a $12 million plan for expansion at its Newport location.
 
The plan, which calls for a whiskey campus, restaurant and event space, received preliminary approval this week from the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority. The expansion is expected to create 39 new jobs locally over the next five years.
 
The distillery’s current primary offering is Kentucky Wild Gin, which is made with 12 different botanicals, most of them locally sourced. New Riff also offers un-aged bourbon and rye whiskies as well as OKI bourbon from hand-selected and blended barrels sourced from an Indiana distillery.
