Templeton Rye Whiskey Class Action Settlement

What You Need To Do: 

Not much to add about this settlement.  $3 per bottle purchased without proof of purchase.  $6 per bottle if you still have your receipts.  Not sure I get the difference between "Made in Iowa" verses "Made in Indiana" but what do I know.

Closed Settlement Statement: 
According to court documents, the claim submission deadline has passed. Please contact the claims administrator if you have any questions.
Settlement Structure: 
Case Summary: 

The lawsuit alleges that Templeton Rye Spirits used deceptive marketing by labeling their Templeton Rye Whiskey as "Small Batch" and "Made in Iowa". In actuality it is distilled in the State of Indiana. Apparently, evidence also exists that the whiskey is not made in small batches.  The parties agree that Templeton Rye is not a “stock whiskey” sourced from a third-party and labeled “Templeton Rye.” Defendant denies all allegations of wrongdoing, but has agreed to settle to avoid a trial.
