One for the special occasions.

Back in 2001, Scott Bush and Meryl Kerkhoff formed a partnership to bring back the “Templeton Rye” brand back to market. Back in the dark days of Prohibition a group of farmers met secretly in the little town of Templeton, Iowa — becoming bootleggers to supplement their incomes. This was the first Templeton Rye Whiskey. It is said that it was Al Capone’s favorite hooch, who called it “The Good Stuff.” The end of Prohibition and an economic recovery put an end to the original Templeton Rye, and the new version is a tribute to it.

Bottled from a hand-picked single barrel, Templeton 10 Year Old Reserve Rye Whiskey was aged for 10 years in charred new American oak. The production is extremely limited, which is good news for those of you who like getting your hands on the rare stuff. Smooth with dark oak, honeyed floral notes, and signature rye spice, this is a delicacy that’s well worth a place in your collection.

George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
