The Iowa distillery Cedar Ridge has launched its latest expression, Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Made from 74% corn, 14% rye, and 12% malted barley, the whiskey is aged in char #3 barrels and is non-chill filtered.

All of the barrels age in non-climate-controlled rickhouses, exposing them to temperature swings of more than 100 degrees each year in Iowa’s climate. The company says that fans of Cedar Ridge’s “Original 86” Bourbon will enjoy this bolder, 116-proof whiskey.

The suggested retail price is $39.99 per 750 ml. bottle.

As the first distillery to open in Iowa since Prohibition, Cedar Ridge is preserving the legacy of a lost craft. Our techniques let each batch of our whiskey take on the character of Iowa’s land and climate. So from the first sip, every step of the process is evident – from grain to glass, for that’s what makes Cedar Ridge Whiskey Authentic by Nature.
