    Making of Templeton Rye Video

    Thought some of you would enjoy this video. Shows the whiskey making process well, and you get some glimpses inside of LDI. I know TR can be controversial around these parts and I'm not trying to rustle any feathers, just thought it was a good video.

    Haaaa! Chuck, I for one have been critical at times when things have gone down this road (although I do share much of the concern with TR). Understanding that, I have to vigorously applaud your restraint. I've been patiently waiting for what you had to say on this one.

    Out of curiosity, what makes it "a good video?"

    I thought it was good that they showed where the whiskey was actually made. It was good to see inside LDI. It was good to learn that TR uses a proprietary yeast strain; I'd like to know more about it, but it piqued my interest. It was interesting to see that, unless I'm mistaken, the barrels are stored at LDI. It's a fluffy marketing piece for sure, but it didn't shy away from where it is distilled and it didn't pretend that anything is distilled in Templeton. I would be curious to know if they do provide a unique recipe and yeast strain to LDI or if it is just 'standard' LDI stocks, if such a thing exists.

    And before I start getting flamed: no I don't work for Templeton and I'm not a huge TR fanboy. I just thought a video showing LDI, where many are sourcing whiskey these days, would be of interest.

    Sorry Jeff

    But did you see the other video where they were leading a tour of TR and tried to pass off that pathetic piece of shit as a still? You can not trust anything that comes out of TR mouths.

    Chuck I ran my mouth for you.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    I have not seen any other TR videos. I'm not a TR apologist, just found it an intriguing video what with all the LDI hubub lately. After they said they would show us how TR was made I fully expected to see their 'still'.

    I'm pretty sure TR has used their still for a small special release. I vaguely recall reading something about some type of special-centennial-somthingorother release of some weird mash bill that was distilled there, and I know I've seen it at a few liquor stores. Its not used to make TR, of course, but I think its been used. That's guesses on top of assumptions though, I don't know for sure.

    If there was anything in that set of videos that showed LDI -- which is a real distillery -- I didn't find it.

    I didn't either at first. You have to scroll the link in this thread back to the beginning of the video.
