Cincinnati Wine News – A new bourbon distillery on the Newport riverfront?

With a hand on the mouse and an ear to the ground, we’re bringing you wine news in the Cincinnati area and beyond. Here’s the rundown:


Party Source owner to add bourbon distillery
From the Cincinnati Business Courier…a microdistillery may be coming to the Newport riverfront. Owners of the Party Source are looking to secure financing incentives for a $4.2 million project to bring a bourbon distillery to land currently owned by the Newport levee. According to the article, the distillery would have a rooftop pavilion that could hold 150 people and a 50-person event center for public tours and dinner meetings. Pulling for this one, as development on either side of the river is good for Cincinnati.

Grammer’s Reopening
From Wine Me, Dine Me…the historic Grammer’s bar in OTR will indeed be reopening. Hopefully soon, and hopefully with much success.
