The good stuff for slick outlaws.
 
When America decided alcohol Prohibition was something they should do, Alphonse Kerkhogg of Templeton, Iowa, had to make a decision: find another job or break bad. He chose outlawry and started producing the finest Rye Whiskey around. When the newest batch was ready, he tied his white horse Babe to the pole, as a code. Everyone called Kerkhoff’s Rye "The Good Stuff," so he decided it was time to expand his business. He teamed up with Al Capone, who smuggled the booze to New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. Today, when Whiskey-making is fortunately legal, Alphonse’s grandson Keith carries on with distilling The Good Stuff, following the renegade recipe.
 
Templeton’s 6-year-old Rye Whiskey is made in Indiana using winter and spring rye grains and double distillation before they put the Spirit into American white oak barrels made in Missouri. Hot summers and cold Winters of Templeton make sure the sauce matures faster and becomes more complex and palatial. In 2010, Templeton set aside a couple of handpicked casks and bottled the Whiskey six years later. Templeton Rye is 91.5 proof and a lovely neat tipple, paying homage to all the outlaws of yesteryear.
