CEDAR RIDGE WINS 3 GOLDS AT 2015 DENVER INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION
Swisher, IA – April 21, 2015, After completing a $1.2 million expansion in November of 2014, nearly doubling their whiskey production capacity, Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery receives exemplary awards at the 2015 Denver International Spirits Competition for their whiskey portfolio. Cedar Ridge brings home the gold in the following three categories: Wheat Whiskey in ‘American Craft Whiskey’, Malted Rye Whiskey in ‘American Straight Rye Whiskey’ and Iowa Bourbon Whiskey in ‘Small Batch Bourbon 10 yrs. & Younger.’
Cedar Ridge has won numerous awards over the years, demonstrating the passion they have to produce premium craft whiskeys. ”The combination of removing harsh impurities before barreling and Iowa’s consistently inconsistent weather aides in the aging process resulting in a premium product,” says General Manager, Jamie Siefken.
With the recent boom of the American Craft Whiskey Industry, Cedar Ridge is gaining popularity and recognition across the country. Outside of Iowa, Cedar Ridge is available in California, Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Beginning May 1, Cedar Ridge will be made available in New York and New Jersey through Imperial Brands, Inc.
“Cedar Ridge whiskeys are in very high demand, across the country. Our main goal has been to keep them available in Iowa, and then to other states, on an allocation-basis, as supply allows” commented Murphy Quint, Director of Wholesale Business Development at Cedar Ridge.
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.
