About Our Column Still
At nearly 60 feet tall and 24 inches in diameter, the column still will produce about a dozen 53-gallon barrels of Kentucky whiskey per day. It’s fed by two silos—one holding corn and the other rye—and, in classic Kentucky style, the column feeds into a squat doubler still. But we also have a unique side conveyor that allows us to add any grain at will into the distilling process. While we focus on producing bourbon and rye whiskeys, you can look forward to a range of innovative Kentucky whiskeys pouring out of our column still.
The cornerstone of our business, and our first passion, is Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. From our family-farmed non-GMO corn to the old-style new charred oak barrels, we simply do not cut any corners to ensure the highest possible quality.
Specially-crafted by The Master of Master Distillers, our consulting master distiller, Larry Ebersold, our straight rye whiskey delivers crackling spicy flavors from start to finish.
New Riff New Make
New Riff New Make is our take on a traditional Kentucky White Dog. Our bourbon and rye mash is handmade on our 60 foot copper column still. This authentic spirit never touches a barrel, from the still to your glass! The unaged format showcases the honest personality of the water, corn, rye, and malted barley used in distillation. This bright spirit is truly a reflection of the terroir of Kentucky. New Riff New Make is complex, flavorful and full of aroma. Bottled unfiltered and cut to a rich yet mixable 90 proof, our White Dog brings character, backbone, and body to any cocktail.
