Templeton Rye: Prohibition-Era Whiskey
By Templeton Rye Spirits
Born in the dignified lawlessness of prohibition defiance, Templeton Rye is an American classic. Originally produced by residents of a small town in Iowa from where it derives its name, legend has it this was the spirit of choice of the infamous Chicago gangster, Al Capone. Pairing a bold, spicy flavor with a smooth, delectable finish, it became known, simply, as the good stuff. You can pay much more for a quality rye, but rarely will you find anything exceeding the balance and silky smooth finish of this iconic whiskey. Enjoy responsibly.
