The town of Templeton, Iowa is known for its rich farm land, German Catholic heritage, and a tradition that traces its origins back to days of prohibition. In recent years, Iowa-made Templeton Rye has become an increasingly popular choice for whiskey connoisseurs. But it was at the height of the prohibition movement that America's taste for this high caliber and sought-after whiskey gave Templeton Rye the unofficial title of "Iowa's good stuff". This locally-produced documentary takes a glimpse at the whiskey cookers of Carroll county and their spirit to hold a community together.
