About the brand
Cedar Ridge Distillery is an in 2005 new launched craft distillery located in Iowa – USA. The former chef Kolin Brighton is responsible for the reins of the distillation process. That’s not unusual, taking into consideration that these processes need excellent ingredients, well-honed technique and expertise.
Each expression in the range has its own subtle yet distinct aromatic profile thanks to double distillation performed at a degree just slightly above the average, designed to remove the maximum of impurities from the nectar.
One of the icons of Cedar Ridge’s success story is their bourbon which, produced from their own cornfields.
American Bourbon Whiskey
A bourbon aged in new oak casks, rounded by the use of corn and malted barley where the rye produces a very pleasant spicy character.
Produced to 100% from local ingredients, the corn comes from the family farm. The unusual method of aging which accelerates maturation and produces a high angel’s share at approx. 18% (between 10% and 12% across the rest of the US typically).
American Rye Whiskey
The rye brings plenty of spice to the whiskey, counterbalanced by the corn that adds sweetness to this perfectly balanced edition. Several awards like the gold medal at the world spirits competition, make these like sweet spices and caramelized pecans tasting whiskey a real high light.
American Single Malt
Is a 100% malted barley, first aged in new oak barrels, then in a Solera containing four types of old casks: wine (from local vineyard), bourbon, french oak and brandy also from the distillery. This leads to a variety of aromas and already won international awards.
