For the best in bourbon, go straight to the heart of corn country – crafted of nearly 75% corn and distilled to a higher proof, resulting in a more clean, approachable sipping whiskey. This is the best of the Midwest in a bottle!
We have held back a few of our most flavorful batches of our flagship Iowa Bourbon Whiskey for extra aging. The extended time in barrel creates a Reserve Bourbon that is rich, complex and sophisticated. 92 proof, 750 ml bottles.

Centuries of enthusiasts can’t be wrong. If it has to be whiskey, make it a cask-aged single malt- if made in Scotland we could call it Scotch. At Cedar Ridge, we deliver the delicate flavor that can only be created by mellowing the finest ingredients in the finest barrels.
These premium, hand-selected casks are crafted using a variety of unique grains or finishing barrels for aging, that impart a range of flavors in the finished whiskey giving each barrel its own signature nose and palate. Each unique cask of Silver Label Single Malt is hand-selected and sampled by our team before we bottle and share it with you.
Cedar Ridge Malted Rye Whiskey is making history. As opposed to other rye whiskeys, which are quite common, Cedar Ridge uses malted rye in its grain bill. To malt, the rye grains are soaked in water to germinate, then given a blast of hot air. Malting the rye generates an enzyme that is naturally helpful with the mashing process and adds weight and an extraordinarily complex flavor profile of toast and biscuit to the whiskey.
If it has to be whiskey, make it a handcrafted single malt. The 2015 adoption of our unique Solera system marries the best characteristics of each single-barrel to achieve a depth of flavor and complexity that is not possible with a single barrel system alone.
“Because we are a winery AND a distillery, naturally we have an abundance of wine barrels. We chose to go with a more fruit-forward recipe for our new Single Malt to really utilize the depth of flavors we have created within our wine barrels,” states Production Manager, Kolin Brighton.
“BEST AMERICAN CRAFT WHISKEY” – 2016 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition
Made from our Iowa Bourbon Mash, this is a 75% corn whiskey that is twice distilled and bottled at 100 proof. Regular whiskeys are then aged in oak casks, but unaged whiskey is bottled as is. Unaged whiskey lovers relish the fact that you can taste the sweet, pure grains. Try it mixed with juice or soda and marvel at its smoothness!
