Cedar Ridge, an extension of Cedar Ridge Vineyards, is the first distillery to produce bourbon in the state of Iowa since Prohibition, owned by Laurie and Jeff Quint. It's comprised of about 75% corn (not surprising given where it's made) with rye and barley. It is charcoal filtered.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma is all pears and winter spice. On the palate, the aromatics are more root beer-like, with a vegetal pepperiness, caramel and vanilla. It's a very lightweight style, almost delicate, finishing clean with a touch of heat."
