Way of Life
Crafting whiskey that respects the past, yet is inspired by the future. All here in Templeton, Iowa.
Small Town, Strong Spirit
Templeton Distillery is built on the shared experiences of our community. The roots of whiskey in our town can be traced back along family lines to the bootleggers of Prohibition. To this day, this rebellious and entrepreneurial mindset still holds true, where residents of our hometown unite together under a shared rallying cry of "A Strong Community Spirit."
Whiskey that represents our memories, our future, and our whiskey way of life.
So Much More Than A Place
A community that respects one another, that supports each other, and who comes together with a revived spirit. That was the town of Templeton, Iowa a century ago, and it's the very same town today. We are following in the footsteps of our forefathers and crafting a whiskey in their tradition. A whiskey that respects the past, yet is inspired by the future. We call it Templeton.
The roads have changed a little, the rules have changed a lot, but the soul of our hometown remains the same.
A Whiskey Way of Life
More than any other spirit, whiskey represents both freedom and unification. It’s a show of strength as well as a peace offering. Templeton Rye whiskey brings people together in a way that transcends time, age, gender, and social class. As an original American Rye, we’ve learned that whenever you share whiskey, you share a part of who you are. It's in these moments of truth that we’ve found our whiskey way of life.
