Newport, Ky.’s New Riff Distilling undergoing renovation

Newport’s New Riff Distilling is making a major investment into the public-facing portions of its facility.

New Riff on Wednesday announced plans for a $3 million renovation of its first-floor gift shop and third-floor event space, which will see the in-house tasting room and cocktail bar, the Aquifer, move from the first to the third floor.
