Imagine living in the 1920s, when alcohol was prohibited. Life was pretty boring. There were no parties that could have alcohol, and if you had alcohol and got caught, you spent a few days in the Gray bar hotel. (Jail)
That didn’t stop one township in Iowa from enjoying the fruits of the Rye. Everything had to be on the down-low, so no one got caught serving any of the Bootleg Whiskey known at those “boring” parties.

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.
