Cedar Ridge Iowa Whiskey

Cedar Ridge Iowa Bourbon Whiskey...$35.99
For the best in bourbon, go straight to the heart of corn country – crafted of nearly 75% corn and distilled to a higher proof, resulting in a more clean, approachable sipping whiskey. This is the best of the Midwest in a bottle! 80 proof.
Brilliant copper color. The nose is complex and subtle for a Bourbon with scents of grain, brown baking spices, and oak, with accents of dried herbs, fresh mint, and hints of toffee. The palate echoes the nose delivering a dry and slightly astringent fruit and caramel core with flanking notes of baking spices, pepper, and toasted grain. Medium-bodied with ideal balance thanks to a bright dose of acidity and dry spices. – BevX
MASHBILL:  74% family-farmed Iowa corn, 14% toasted rye, 12% 6-row malted barley

Cedar Ridge Malted Rye Whiskey....$35.99
Cedar Ridge Malted Rye Whiskey is making history since its late 2014 release! As opposed to other rye whiskeys, which are quite common, Cedar Ridge uses malted rye in its grain bill. To malt, the rye grains are soaked in water to germinate, then given a blast of hot air. Malting the rye generates an enzyme that is naturally helpful with the mashing process and adds weight and an extraordinarily complex flavor profile of toast and biscuit to the whiskey. 86 proof.
Owner, Jeff Quint notes, “This country has a lot of rye whiskeys, many of which taste similar. As a small producer, our goal is to differentiate our products from all others.”
MASHBILL:  51% malted rye, 34% rye, 12% corn, 3% malted barley

Cedar Ridge Rye Whiskey...$35.99
Traditional Rye Whiskey, made with modern craft distilling techniques.  A 70% Toasted Rye mash bill lneds this whiksey to be at home on the rocks or mixed up in classic cocktails.   A perfect blend of rye spice and vanilla oak, this whiskey is balanced like no other.

Cedar Ridge Wheat Whiskey....$35.99
Technically a single malt and the softest of our whiskeys. This 100% winter wheat whiskey is a delicate yet flavorful spirit, perfect for cocktails. 80 proof.
Brilliant, pale golden color. The aromatics are quite delicate offering scents of steeped grains, butterscotch, toffee, and subtle baked orchard fruits. The palate confirms the nose being a bit drier than expected with a grassy core and assertive notes of green tea emerging on the finish. Medium-bodied with bright grain and green notes that become astringent on the finish. – BevX
