Founded by Veterans of the United States Military, with most coming from the Special Operations Community, Cold Zero Spirits are distilled, manufactured and distributed right here in the United States of America. We chose to partner with Cedar Ridge Distillery to produce our Whiskey due to the heritage and history of excellence.

In 2005, Jeff Quint founded Cedar Ridge Distillery because he believed it was time for Iowa – the number one corn-producing state in the U.S. – to share its homegrown Bourbon Whiskey with the world.

Today, as Iowa’s first and oldest distillery, Cedar Ridge provides Premium Midwest Whiskey from America’s grain belt, managing every step of production while allowing nature to be the ultimate guide. Influenced by a heritage of wine making and roots in agriculture, Cedar Ridge consistently produces high-quality award winning products.
