New Riff Distilling is prepping for the release of there new Backsetter Series. The first two release in the series will be their Peated Backset Kentucky Straight Bourbon and Peated Backset Kentucky Straight Rye. The New Riff Backsetter series offers profound evidence for the impact of the sour mash process on whiskey flavor. “We are firmly committed to the production of sour mash whiskeys, according to Kentucky tradition; yet we are also committed to creating a new riff. For this release, we have used backset from peated malted barley in the mashing of our standard recipe. The resultant smoky flavor is hauntingly unique, with layers of peat” Enjoy our this latest riff on one of Kentucky’s oldest whiskey traditions.
