Independently-owned New Riff Distilling has announced it will be distributing its Kentucky-made bourbons and ryes across North Carolina in the coming weeks. Republic National Distributing Company, with locations in Charlotte and Raleigh, is the distributor for the state.

“New Riff is grateful to bring its products to North Carolina and to collaborate with core distributor Republic National Distributing Company,” said New Riff President Mollie Lewis. “This is a prominent company to work with and we are excited to further our footprint in the industry with their partnership.”

Products available across North Carolina include New Riff’s Bottled in Bond Bourbon, Bottled in Bond Rye, 6 Year 100% Malted Rye Whiskey, Single Barrel Bourbon and Single Barrel Rye.

Family-owned RNDC represents one of the leading wholesale wine and spirits distributors in the nation, with locations across 39 states and the District of Columbia. With a team that offers exemplary customer service and matchless expertise in the beverage sector, RNDC is committed to providing its broad portfolio to its suppliers and customers.

Fiercely independent and unabashedly innovative: New Riff Distilling starts with time-honored sour mash methods and bottled-in-bond standards, creating new riffs on old traditions since 2014. Located in Northern Kentucky — the gateway to bourbon country — the independently-owned distillery produces award-winning bourbon, rye, single malt whiskey and gin. Bourbon and rye are also available in single barrel selections, and the distillery boasts a popular private barrel selection program offering quarter, half and full barrel picks complete with personalized labels. New Riff sources its water from an alluvial aquifer under the distillery, accessed via a 100’ deep private well and providing cold, clean and mineral-rich water perfect for whiskey making. The public-facing spaces in the distillery, renovated in 2023, include the Riff Shop with customizable gifting options and locally sourced artisan goods; and The Aquifer Tasting Room, located on the third floor of the distillery, featuring signature cocktails, flights, and pours of New Riff’s entire portfolio of award-winning spirits including rare, limited-edition, and distillery-exclusive releases.
