The distillery, which officially opened this week, sees the whiskey maker bring all of its production in-house. Previously, Templeton Rye's portfolio was distilled and aged in Indiana and finished and bottled in Iowa.

"With the opening of this distillery, Templeton Rye brings all parts of the whiskey-making process back to Templeton, where it started decades ago," the company said.

The distillery, work on which began in April last year, consists of a 34,500-square-foot distillery and an ageing warehouse at the company's 20-acre Templeton facility. It will produce up to 500,000 gallons of rye whiskey a year and employ about 28 people.

In 2015, the craft distiller moved to settle a lawsuit challenging its claim to have been producing its whiskey in the state of Iowa. At the time, the company said: "The food and beverage industry has recently become the target of a significant amount of class-action litigation based on labelling and marketing practices."
