This Prohibition-era rye is high-proof rye, aged in freshly charred white oak barrels. The char from the newly fired white oak leads to an intricately flavored, smooth-tasting Black label high-proof new-made American rye whose taste is defined with every sip. We invite you to spend some time to savor all the nuances of flavor that are imbued in our black label rye and invite you to contact us to share your experience.

THE AGE OLD PROBLEM
FINDING THE BEST RYE
If you are like most Americans, it is difficult to find a top-notch bottle of whiskey that can be bought locally. Obviously, a whiskey that goes down smooth will attract attention and bring you back for that 2nd & 3rd drink. What if you had a whiskey that was genuinely great?
Introducing our Traditional small-batch rye. Distilled in Pre-Prohibition-era replica 26-gallon pot stills and aged in our 15-gallon casks. Our “All-Natural Rye” is handcrafted and hand-bottled.
It is 1931 in Templeton, Iowa. Desperation abounds during the Great Depression. A mother on a farm in Templeton, Iowa does what she can to survive. Prohibition is in full force. She begins using her baking skills to craft rye. Due to the quality and reputation of rye made in Templeton, it becomes a nationally-renowned product. That lady is named Lorine Sextro. She was never caught and nearly took her family secret to her grave. Today, her grandson Heath Schneider is continuing that legacy making Iowa Legendary Rye the good old fashioned way. Original. Authentic. This is Iowa Legendary Rye.
