The tour was great. I'm not a drinker but my girlfriend is, we both sampled and I thought the gin was better than the burben again I'm not a drinker. The gin had a sweater taste, the other was spicy and it burned lol. Great place even Better staff.

Less than an hour. It was fun and informative. The first batch of bourbon will not be ready until late summer. Will return to try it.

Just finished a tour with Stuart. The tour was short but Very informative. Stuart was quite funny and full of quips. The tour was very Informative new riff couldn’t not have found a better person to guide the tour. As new riff is a young distillery I look for them to be around for a while. The oki 12 year bourbon sample during the tour was very good and smooth. I personally was not a fan of the gins but other people in the tour loved the smoky gin.... if your out and about in Newport stop in and take a tour it is worth the hour. And the price is right

Tour guide was a riot and you could tell he loved working there. Great visit.
Fun to visit the huge party store next door as well just to see the amount of variety. We aren’t drinkers but still enjoyed this.
