    GREAT STUFF.

    My band played the open house of the distillery after they added on. Stuff is selling like hotcakes.

    I've got a bottle at my place right now, great stuff. Target had it on sale this week if you want to try it out.

    yeah. It is good. I've decided to send it to some of my clients as Christmas presents. It's a local product. Something they wouldn't find in their part of the country. Kind of unique. I thought it would make a good gift.

    There's at least 1 Cyclone fan at the company. He's in our section at football games.

    He is an Iowa grad. But he's an exceptional and kind guy, and one of the best people I met during my time as a student at the UI. His brother is an ISU alum.

    Re: 75th anniversary of prohibition-Templeton Rye

    I have had moonshined templeton rye, (not made by the company, but still made nearby) and that stuff'll darn near eat the paint off of the highway. it serves its purpose well, however.

    Re: 75th anniversary of prohibition-Templeton Rye

    I also have the moonshine brand straight from Templeton and it is the greatest whiskey I have ever drank! (I grew up just south of Manning - about 15-20 miles from Templeton).

    On a side note, I was going through my grandfathers affects a few years back and came upon a bottle of it that was at least 50-60 years old and was now clear. So, to prove a point, I started a lawn mower with it! Now, I drink it! Great stuff!

    And yes, the distillers are Iowa fans! But I don't hold that against them!

    Re: 75th anniversary of prohibition-Templeton Rye

    I remember the commercial for it on the radio, they were talking about how great it goes with Hawkeye football.

    It is good, but y'all need to try Pappy Van Winkle's Kentucky Bourbon(like my pic below), its much, much better. I have a bottle of 10 and 15 year family reserve. I hate whisky, but the wife got me a couple of bottles and they are liquid gold.

    Re: 75th anniversary of prohibition-Templeton Rye

    Templeton Rye is great stuff. Between that and Old Main, I could drink Iowa booze for the rest of my life, and never get tired of it... Speaking of moonshine, my buddy's uncle who lives up by hometown in north iowa used to make homemade wine that was about 50-60 proof. The problem was it tasted like sweet wine, with a little extra alcohol, but it was almost on par w/whiskey for strength.

    It's great to have locally produced and artisan quality spirits and beer isn't it?

    Hell yes. It's just another reason Iowa is such a great place... I always support support a quality local product over an average national/big brand one...
