... And I just had another encounter this weekend, Templeton drinkers cannot be convinced in any way, shape or form that it is made in any other place than Iowa.

I think we left it at me telling him that since he was in Iowa, he should just go to the distillery and start asking questions.
I think in the future we may have to just focus on getting them to drink Kool-Aid instead .
