ONE MILLION: Templeton Rye Milestone

templeton_rye

An Iowa whiskey company is hitting a major milestone and you can get into the spirit.

Templeton Rye is filling its one millionth bottle of whiskey Wednesday. The Prohibition-era recipe has been produced legally for seven years now.

The millionth bottle will have a nine-digit code printed on it. It will be sent for distribution and eventually put on a shelf somewhere in Iowa.

The person who discovers the bottle will be invited to the distillery for a tour and tasting with the master distiller and co-founder of Templeton Rye.

Thursday marks the anniversary of the day Prohibition was repealed 80 years ago.
