The Quintessential™ First Fill Sherry Cask

This American Single Malt Whiskey was handcrafted from 100% malted barley, aged in Cedar Ridge’s bourbon barrels, and finished in a 132-gallon FIRST-FILL Sherry Butt from Jerez, Spain.

This barrel was selected by Murphy Quint, Cedar Ridge’s Master Blender, and released as a single barrel at true cask strength, only yielding 594 total bottles and only available in Iowa.

This is my favorite barrel of whiskey on the property at Cedar Ridge. I thought it would be fun to release it at cask strength so that our fans get to experience it the same way that I do, uncut and in its natural form.

Private Barrel Program

Cedar Ridge offers a limited number of bourbon and rye private barrels to select retailers, businesses, and whiskey clubs each year.

“The beautiful thing about whiskey is that there is no right or wrong. Each barrel is different, with its own unique strengths and limitations. Your role is to discover them.”
