Cedar Ridge Malted Rye Whiskey

Not like the rest

Unlike most rye whiskeys, Cedar Ridge uses malted rye in it’s mash 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 in the mashing process and adds weight and complex flavors of toast and biscuit to the whiskey.
