Executive Producer, Nate Kaeding + Short's Burger and Shine

Beginning in 1920, for nigh on 50 years, Short’s Shoe Shine and Repair in Iowa City sent many a shoe out onto South Clinton Street buffed to a high mirror shine. Owner and proprietor, H.D. Short, was a humble and industrious man. Our burger joint now sits in his former shop. We carry on the Short’s name with pride and strive to maintain his standard of excellence in a new century. H.D. didn’t make whiskey, but we think he’d be keen on ours. Cedar Ridge Distillery crafts small batches of our whiskey using local grains - each barrel is finished with a stave of charred bur oak harvested on the banks of the Cedar River at Kroul Farms. This attention to detail and local sourcing creates a whiskey with a distinct flavor that is authentically Iowan.
