Barrel Aged Gin New Riff Distilling
  • Barrel-aged gin produced by New Riff Distilling in Newport, Kentucky
  • 12 botanicals include juniper—including Kentucky-foraged juniper—as well as orris root, cinnamon, licorice, Persian lime, angelica, coriander, bitter orange peel, lemon peel, locally foraged American spicebush, and Kentucky’s state flower, goldenrod
  • Botanicals distilled directly in a copper pot still
  • A small amount of new-make rye whiskey is added to enrich texture and lengthen flavor
  • Rested in first-fill New Riff bourbon barrels for 5–7 months
  • Aromas of juniper, saffron, and faint vanilla prime the palate for a warm, confectionary gin that echoes the nose with the addition of orange and sandalwood
  • Gold medalist at the 2023 San Francisco World Spirits Competition
  • Non-chill filtered; 47% ABV

New Riff’s Wild Gin gets the cask-conditioned treatment, imparting a warming undertone that complements its herbaceous notes. The unique ingredient Spicebush pairs beautifully with the vanilla softness imparted by the barrels and a dry finish is given depth by lingering orange zest. New Riff Kentucky Wild Gin Bourbon Barreled works beautifully in a Gin Old Fashioned or a classic Martinez.
