From the first distillery to open in Iowa since Prohibition, Master Distiller Jeff Quint uses a grain-to-glass approach including locally sourced corn. The packaging has always reflected a small batch, home-grown feel to ensure the premium, hand-crafted whiskeys command attention. But after earning top honors in a pair of premier competitions, Cedar Ridge’s reputation grew and distribution followed. The time had come to evolve the look to be more reflective of a mature distillery backed by a team working at the height of its powers.
Refined photography was shot in environments around the distillery to further the authenticity of the brand and its place in the spectrum of premium whiskeys. In short, this is tasty, high-quality liquor.
