ABOUT TEMPLETON RYE
Templeton Rye Whiskey tracks back to the early 1920s when residents of Templeton distilled a much sought-after rye whiskey. That bootlegging enterprise, forced underground during the Prohibition era, nonetheless flourished during that period. Today, the whiskey may be slightly different—instead of stills in basements and barns, the company has a modern, legal plant—but the entrepreneurial spirit remains true to Templeton’s roots. On August 7, 2018, Templeton Rye Spirits, LLC marked the beginning of a new chapter, highlighting a rich history with the community they call home by the official opening of the Templeton Distillery in Iowa. The 34,500 square-foot distillery, a $35 million project, was a significant investment in the community of Templeton.
