Templeton Distillery Unveils New Bottle and Brand Design as it Ramps Up Its Global Footprint

TEMPLETON, IOWA (MAY 11, 2021) - Templeton Distillery is proud to officially unveil a global packaging redesign for its entire award-winning American Rye whiskey portfolio. The new design will commence roll out in the USA and all 750ml international markets across June, while the EU and Australia will see an August launch in 700ml size.

To coincide with the new branding, Templeton has also announced the launch of the newest addition to its core portfolio – Templeton 10 Year Reserve Rye Whiskey. A unique offering with each release bottled from a hand-selected and uniquely numbered single barrel. The whiskey is aged a full decade in charred new American oak barrels, resulting in flavor notes of smooth, dark oak with honeyed floral tones and classic rye spice. Non-chill filtered and bottled at 52% ABV, this exciting addition to the Templeton portfolio has already been awarded a Double Gold Medal at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition in May.

Co-Founder Keith Kerkhoff noted, "All of us at Templeton Distillery are really excited about the new look of our award-winning portfolio, in particular our new 10 year Reserve. Every good revival has a way of bringing history into the now, so the new 10 Year Reserve along with the 4 and 6 Year, will be featured prominently in refreshed packaging. We have big ambitions for both the Templeton Rye brand and Templeton Distillery, and we are looking forward to introducing this fantastic new packaging to our 40 International markets worldwide as well as continuing to build our global footprint as the Rye revival continues."
