Leaving a Legacy of
Whiskey in the Midwest

2017 Distillery of the Year
While each cask plays an important role in the blend, the peated malt delivers an important feature. Its smoky influence, though subtle due to being blended with non-peated single malts, lingers long on the finish, a transition that emerges after the initial notes of sherry and Madeira have faded. This was a key element to the project, achieving a finish that lingers pleasantly, much like the subtle hint of smoke you might experience long after savoring a cigar.
This is a whiskey I’ve envisioned for a long time, and I thoroughly enjoyed putting it together for your enjoyment.

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.”
