While in Chicago for WhiskyFest, I had the chance to spend some time with Scott Bush of Templeton Rye from Iowa. He shared some information with me about the rye whiskey he currently has on the market.
Like a few other whiskey entrepreneurs, he’s having another distillery make rye whiskey for him under his specifications until his distillery cranks out his own mature whiskey. He told me that he’s currently on his third batch, and a fourth batch is in the works for a future release.
When will he be bottling his own stuff? Will he blend in some of his own stuff with the rye he’s having made for him?
“Maybe,” Scott told me. Stay tuned…
