Straight from the Still
Hello friends. You may have started to notice a bit more Templeton Rye on store shelves around Iowa. We were fortunate enough to produce additional Templeton Rye over four years ago which has now aged and will be finding its way to a store near you. As in the past, we are doing our best to have a reliable supply of the Good Stuff in Iowa for the holidays. Going forward, we will continue to bring additional quantities of Templeton Rye to you as soon as possible, however, we will not do so at the expense of compromising the quality.
So please enjoy a little of the Good Stuff with your friends and family this holiday season and stock up for next year. As always, thank you for your continued support.

We have had several inquiries about the date of our next volunteer bottling. We will not have a Volunteer Bottling week this Fall but are planning some for the Spring/Summer of 2013. Please continue to watch our newsletter for details.
Iowan Starring in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire
Apparently, we have more in common with the show Boardwalk Empire than just Al Capone and his affinity for the Good Stuff.
Templeton Brand Ambassador Michael Killmer and Founder Scott Bush ran into Iowa native Curt Bouril, who plays the Boardwalk Empire character Clifford Lathrop, on a recent trip to New York.
Tune in for, hopefully, more Templeton Rye sightings as Capone becomes a more prevalent figure during the current season of Boardwalk Empire.
