The QuintEssential Special Release

Pete & Sherri, Married - 1st Anniversary

This Special Release American Single Malt is a marriage of 6-year-old single malt that was finished in a first-fill sweet amontillado sherry butt with 6-year-old peated malt that was aged in an ex-bourbon barrel.

The name is obviously a play on words, but it’s a nod to one of our most popular past releases that we wanted to revisit and give a little facelift.


The first in a new limited release series where we highlight some of our favorite and unique single malts.

Leaving a Legacy of
Whiskey in the Midwest

2017 Distillery of the Year

I like to produce big, bold single malts, so this is much more sherry-forward than peat-forward. But the peat definitely makes an appearance on the mid-palate and finish. It was bottled at natural cask strength (118.1 proof), and as always it is non-chill filtered and no color was added.

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.”
