New Riff Distilling LLC announced it broke ground on a more than $10 million barrel storage warehouse in Campbell County.
The new 55,000-square-foot warehouse will be located on 10 acres in Silver Grove and will help meet growing customer demand at the flagship distillery in Newport. Company leaders expect the facility to be operational by spring 2023. The project represents continued growth for New Riff, which in 2021 saw an expansion of its Newport distillery to accommodate three new fermenters and increase production to 12,000 barrels annually, representing a 50% increase in capacity.
“We appreciate the support of state and local leadership for New Riff Distilling and the bourbon industry statewide,” said Ken Lewis, New Riff Distilling founder, and CEO. “We are proud of the products we make and the people who make them and look forward to continuing to not just make great whiskey and gin, but to support our community through our success.”
Founded in 2014, independently owned New Riff released its first products to market in 2018 and has since grown to distribute to 16 states. The Campbell County distillery produces bourbon, rye, and gin, with its bourbon and rye offerings available in single-barrel selections, in addition to a popular private-barrel selection program.
