Experience the Good Stuff

Introducing the Templeton Rye Distillery and Visitor Center

Since day one, we’ve been proud to represent the town of Templeton and our Carroll County, Iowa, roots. We savor the opportunity to share in the growth of our community and state.

Now, we’re proud to share our homegrown distillery with you right here in Templeton, where it all began. The Templeton Rye Distillery and Visitor Center are open to the public for tours and tastings. Distillery tours provide unique insights into the process of creating The Good Stuff, while the Visitor Center features a museum showcasing our deep ties to the community around us.
