Cedar Ridge Iowa Straight Malted Rye 6 Years Old
Make It A Malt
We hand-selected this cask from the family-owned Cedar Ridge distillery in Iowa. The dramatic seasonal temperature swings of the Great Plains help create whiskies with a soft, clean, yet spicy character.
Cedar Ridge is one of the few distilleries that make malted rye whiskey, made with germinated rye grain. This 6-year-old single cask, made with 51% malted rye, 34% rye, 12% corn, and 3% malted barley, shows why the style is worth your attention. It has a citrusy nose, with lemon, custard, and a rich depth on the palate. The malted rye grain adds a complex, biscuity and toasty flavor and a great mouthfeel.

About Cedar Ridge Distillery
Many of the distilleries we work with have a strong local following. But none of them can match Cedar Ridge, a truly beloved family-owned Iowa distillery that has achieved a once-unimaginable feat. Cedar Ridge’s flagship Iowa bourbon is the top-selling bourbon in Iowa, outselling even big name, mass-market bourbons. Cedar Ridge’s bourbon and its other whiskies have their own distinctive character (notably a soft, creamy texture), born from the dramatic seasonal temperature swings of the Great Plains.
