NEW RIFF Single Barrel Bourbon
special 80’s EMPORIUM limited edition
This barrel was hand-picked by Stu Pollard and friends in February of 2019 at New Riff Distillery in Newport, KY. They were joined by bourbon connoisseurs Jason Brauner (Bourbon’s Bistro) and John Johnson (The Wine Rack), and the very entertaining selection process can be viewed here.
A select few bottles from our barrel have been set aside to celebrate the launch of Stu Pollard’s Eighties Emporium, a new online home for 80's movie clips, trailers, commercials, music videos and more.
The medium-bodied bourbon from this “honey barrel” is available via three special edition labels in all.
