    For you Templeton Rye Fanboys

    Templeton Rye furniture


    TEMPLETON, Iowa There's a business partnership starting to age here because of the town's spirit.
    We're talking about a spirit of the alcohol variety: Templeton Rye, a whiskey so popular in the few places it's distributed that the stores can't keep it in stock. For the last seven months, the ownership team of Templeton Rye has joined with an enterprising Templeton family that is crafting and selling benches, stools, tables and clocks made from the charred oak barrels used by the distillery to age the alcohol.

    Cedar Ridge whiskey is just as good and IMO, better. There rum OS the best I have ever had (my expertise) crwine.com.

    But I do love some Templeton.

    Kind of a cool idea, my Dad would flip his lid if this showed up at his house. He is a huge TR fan/drinker!

    Plus the fact that it's an ISU family is pretty cool.

    if it comes adorned in seagram's 7 stickers and duct tape, then it's legit.

    They are most definitely big Iowa Staters. They do excellent work, the product is great, and I couldn't be more excited for them.

    I've seen that at the store. May have to pick up a bottle if it's as good as you say it is.

    Plus, Cedar Ridge is actually made in Iowa, not just barrel aged in Iowa.

    For local distilling River Baron Vodka is great. It's got a pleasant flavor without the burn.

    I wonder how many people know that Templeton Rye isn't actually made in Iowa anymore.

    I need to try Cedar Ridge.

    It's bourbon, right? Not rye?


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Cedar Ridge's Clearheart spirits are quite good, and when Templeton Rye fired back up I was disappointed to discover it was not made in Iowa.

    Yah, is bourbon. They also have other stuff:

    Spirits from Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery, LLC

    One thing that's not listed there, they recently started selling a cowboy whiskey (it's aged, I think, in their used bourbon barrels, so it's not legally bourbon).

    The benefits of living 8 miles away.



    One HUGE benefit of CR, because they produce on site, they always have product coming out. None of the searching posts for who has some, etc. It might be out for a few days if a particular store runs low, but it's around. Not for lack of demand, but because they are always bottling.

    True Templeton Rye is and always will be made in Iowa. Just got three bottles last week.

    Now the Commercial Templeton Wall Lake Manning Rye, that is a whole other story.
