DES MOINES, Iowa — Your next bottle of Templeton Rye could have a new label.

According to the Des Moines Register, the company will change its label to accurately show where the whiskey is distilled, because it’s not in Iowa — it’s in Indiana.

The company says it will change the label to be more transparent and reduce confusion.

The whiskey is distilled and aged in Indiana, then shipped to Iowa to be blended with other whiskies and water before being bottled and shipped.

Templeton Rye says the new labels should be on bottles in 60 days.
