When Prohibition outlawed the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages in 1920, many enterprising residents of a small town in Iowa chose to become outlaws – producing a high-caliber and much sought-after whiskey known as TEMPLETON RYE, or “THE GOOD STUFF” to those in the know. Over the course of its storied history, Templeton Rye became Al Capone’s whiskey of choice, quickly finding its way to the center of his bootlegging empire. Legend suggests that a few bottles even found their way inside the walls of Alcatraz to the cell of prisoner AZ-85. Templeton Rye is based on the original Prohibition era Kerkhoff recipe.
