The O.K.I. brand first helped get New Riff Distilling off the ground and now Chad Brizendine and Jake Warm are hoping to breathe new life into it after acquiring it from New Riff. O.K.I.'s first single barrel releases are bottled at cask strength, and were released in Northern Kentucky this fall with distribution to Ohio and Indiana planned soon thereafter.

The first release of O.K.I consisted of several single barrels, each having similar yet unique flavor profiles. This was evident as I tasted Barrel #4 against Barrel #18. Where Barrel #18 is a spice bomb that delivers oodles of heat, Barrel #4 pulls forth more pronounced fruiter flavors in the nose and palate. While the finish is lacking any soul, it’s another good start to bringing the brand back to life. It will be interesting to see how O.K.I finds its footing as it grows with time.
