Our latest guest on The Craft Spirits Podcast is Murphy Quint of Cedar Ridge Distillery in Swisher, Iowa. As head distiller and director of operations, Quint oversees the distillery, winery, vineyards, campus grounds and facilities. As Cedar Ridge is one of the few winery and distilleries in the United States, Quint has gained a unique understanding of how the influence of wine can impact the flavor profile of whiskey. During his tenure at Cedar Ridge Distillery, Quint has helped the distillery overcome legacy brands to become the number one selling bourbon in Iowa.
In this episode, Quint discusses the growth of American single malt whiskey; the success of Cedar Ridge’s bourbon; the distillery’s partnership with the band Slipknot; and much more.
