On the eve of the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition, the Fleur Cinema will screen the world premiere of Kristian Day’s “Capone’s Whiskey: The Story of Templeton Rye”. The film chronicles the history of the infamous whiskey cookers of Carroll county from their outlaw days of Prohibition to the legalized and much sought after liquor.
“It’s about the history of the whiskey,” says Director Kristian Day. “We have spent almost an entire year compiling research and interview subjects from all over the state. Historians from Dubuque to Sioux City who are experts in both the Prohibition era and Al Capone’s presence in Iowa have been involved in the production process since the beginning. I am very excited to finally share the rich history of Templeton Rye with the rest of the world.”
