Lost Lantern Whiskey

New Riff Kentucky Straight Bourbon Single Cask

Wait, They Make Bourbon In Kentucky?

For our Summer of Bourbon products, we have created a Virtual Roadtrip with a stop for each distillery! Check out this product’s stop here.

Lost Lantern hand-selected this cask from New Riff Distilling in Newport, Kentucky. The family-owned distillery brings a new lens to centuries of Kentucky bourbon tradition. Their relentless commitment to patiently and meticulously doing things the right way has quickly made New Riff a leading voice in bourbon’s historic heartland.

Made from 65% corn, 30% rye, and 5% malted barley, this straight bourbon whiskey was aged for 4 years in a 53-gallon char 1 ISC Cooper’s Reserve barrel. It has warm, rounded oak and an intriguing smoky spice on the nose. The palate has notes of smoked maraschino cherries, vanilla and molasses, and lemon meringue pie, with a hint of mint on the finish.

New Riff is, to us, probably the most exciting of the new distilleries that have opened up in Kentucky in recent years. It doesn’t have a centuries-old family connection to a bourbon legend. It doesn’t need one. It was founded by true experts and true bourbon lovers who just wanted to make great bourbon, with no shortcuts and no compromises. And that is exactly what New Riff has done.

This is Lost Lantern’s first release from New Riff Distilling and our first release from Kentucky.
