Templeton Rye will add clarity of Indiana origins

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES, Iowa - Executives at Templeton Rye say they will change labels on bottles of their celebrated whiskey to be clear the alcohol is distilled in Indiana, not Iowa.
    
Company President Scott Bush and Chairman Vern Underwood says the company would change its labels after the newspaper published a story in which industry experts questioned whether Templeton Rye met federal disclosure requirements.
    
Bush and Underwood also told the newspaper Templeton Rye was distilled in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, using a stock recipe and not one derived from the whiskey's prohibition era past.
    
Since it began selling Templeton Rye in late 2005, the whiskey has been a big seller in Iowa and has emphasized its colorful history in the state.
    
The company is working to build an Iowa distillery.
