It was stated on their website from day 1 that is was distilled in Indiana. But eventually they wanted to build a distillery in Templeton. I f you do research, you will find out that there are other distillers that have their liquor distilled in Indiana & then shipped to their business to bottle it. There is no basis for this lawsuit.
I read on their website In a blog comment long ago that it was not distilled in templeton. I also met them at a promotional booth once and asked them about the distillery and they disclosed it was not in Iowa. There was no deceit!! Most importantly, there was no malice or intent to mislead or harm!!!
I think it's pitiful for someone to file a lawsuit to gain recognition and greed and we wonder why society is the way it is
Yes I do. They flat out lied, they flat out ignored the TTB regulations and they flat out disrespected their customers. I hope this sets an example to all the other lying NDPs out there. It doesn't matter that the whiskey was sourced, there's nothing wrong with that, what matters is when you lie and pretend that you made something you didn't. If they had just been upfront about it to begin with this wouldn't be happening.
I have taken the tour and have enjoyed their product. They never misled anyone. They have great stories that have been verified several times. These guys are doing it right.
I have voted over 40 times. How is this poll worth anything?
decieved, yes. Worth a lawsuit, no.
If you really want to know about a product do some research people. Go to their website, take a tour and in it they have always disclosed it was distilled in Indiana, no big secret!! As for the recipe they also explain how that was developed as it can't be exactly how it was then. The federal government has regulations that were abided by by the company!! It's all about the great product and the stories of long ago that brought it to be! Don't let some rich lawyers in Illinois take away an Iowa product that many of us have come to know and love!! Stand up for it Iowa !!
If you lived around Carroll county you would have known that this was not the same recipe. If it was we all wouldn't have a liver left. That old recipe produced a drink of over 100 proof. Templeton Rye is a good product and tort lawyers are looking for the next company to sue.
This is a quality product. They should just stress the quality in the recipe. Who cares where It Is bottled. I think it is a frivolous law suit.
