Lost Lantern Whiskey

Cedar Ridge Iowa Straight Wheat

Amber Waves of Grain

Lost Lantern 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.

The best straight wheat whiskies manage to be both welcoming and powerful, and this single cask is no exception. This was made from 100% malted white winter wheat and was aged for 6 years in a 53-gallon barrel. It has a very spicy nose, with notes of black cherry and vanilla shortbread on the nose. The palate is bold and warm, with hints of baking spice and cinnamon coffee cake. Elegant and powerful.

You may not be very familiar with wheat whiskies. After all, there aren’t that many of them. But this cask is truly special, and we expect it will quickly become a favorite.

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.
