Templeton Distillery tells BourbonBlog.com that they are releasing their first whiskey entirely produced by Templeton Distillery in Iowa:  “Fortitude” Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

Scheduled to hit the shelves in May 2024, this bourbon whiskey launch marks a significant evolution for Templeton Distillery.
