Templeton Rye

Gold medal at the LA wine and spirits competition.
I guess it's a pretty big deal.
They claim they are going to increase production 5 fold over the next year.
So much for hanging on to my bottle for future ebay sales.
Now I need to find bitters in Des Moines. Something other than Angostura.

  1. Bob,

    I have an extra (unopened) bottle of Peychaud's I'd be happy to pass your way. Send me an email at reese(at) with your address and I'll get it in the mail.

      A generous offer, and appreciated.
      I ordered from Amazon both the Peychaud's, and Regans Orange.
      I'm in totally unchartered territory here, and would have felt awful if you sent me a bottle, and it turned out to be something that sat in the cupboard till I died.
      The reason that I have the Templeton is that it was 27.00 at Costco. Living in Iowa, I've heard a lot about it since its resurrection. While not a big whiskey drinker, I want to try the classic's before I just dump it in a glass with some coke.
      But, thank you. Suggestions on where I start are most welcome.

        Well you've got the Rye, you're going to have the Peychaud's, all you need is some Absinthe (or a substitute) and you've got a Sazerac. Which, as a side note, was just named New Orleans' Official Cocktail.

    2. You can buy Peychaud's, Fee's, and both types of Angostura bitters on Amazon.

      1. has all kinds of bitters.

        1. Gary Regan's orange bitters are available online; just google it.

            Also available on Amazon/KegWorks (same thing -- it's KegWorks's Amazon store where you can buy all of these bitters). :-)
