Swisher, IA – April 1, 2015, After completing a $1.1 million expansion in November of 2014, nearly doubling their whiskey production, Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery announces the new beginning of their Cedar Ridge Single Malt Whiskey. Over the years, Cedar Ridge has crafted many unique barrels of single malt whiskey and released them to their fans. They listened and gathered feedback. The adoption of their new Solera system allows them to marry the best characteristics of each of your favorite single-barrel single malts to achieve a depth of flavor and complexity that is not possible with a single barrel system alone.

Production Manager, Kolin Brighton states, “Because we are a winery AND a distillery, naturally we have an abundance of wine barrels. We chose to go with a more fruit-forward recipe for our new Single Malt to really utilize the depth of flavors we have created within our wine barrels, especially our Port barrels.”

The new Cedar Ridge Single Malt Whiskey will be available in Iowa April 1, 2015. Cedar Ridge will continue to release their signature single-barrel Single Malt Whiskey, but on a much less frequent basis. These single-barrels will be designated with a new foil label.

Cedar Ridge brings you the first licensed distillery in the state of Iowa since the age of prohibition. Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery is a family-owned winery, distillery and event space nestled in the beautiful Iowa countryside. Award-winning wines and internationally recognized spirits are produced on site at the only winery/distillery in Iowa.
