The Templeton Rye Settlement Website Is Live

Have you ever wished you could punish a business that has lied to you and ripped you off? Now you can.

If you purchased bottles of Templeton Rye whiskey, or purchased alcoholic beverages containing Templeton Rye whiskey (i.e., cocktails in a bar), between January 1, 2006 and July 21, 2015, you have some money coming but you have to claim it. The website where you can do that is now live. To get started filing your claim, go here.

If you want to know more about the Templeton case, go here.

To make your revenge that much more sweet, you should know that Templeton does not have any insurance coverage for this. It's coming right out of the liars' pockets. The court has capped the damages at $2.5 million, and they deserve to pay every penny of it, but for that to happen people must file claims. You can get up to $36.

No, it's not a lot of money, but justice is priceless.

Spread the word.

Nice. I just submitted my claim online, and tomorrow I'll send them proof of purchase.

Thanks for posting this.

"Your completed claim form must include your full name and address, complete responses to the appropriate purchase questions, copies of your proof of purchase documents if you have them, and your electronic affirmation."

I wonder if a picture of bottles which have the "old" labels (batch & bottle #) would be sufficient for proof of purchase documents. Their FAQ doesn't mention that topic.

Templeton has already paid as much as they ever will. They most likely already purchased insurance well before the final settlement amount was handed down. The insurer is banking on a smaller settlement and a smaller number of filings than it took in their flat fee from Templeton.

So, you won't be hurting the Templeton more by filing. However, you can make the reinsurers charge much more money for cases like this in the future if there is a strong response.

Who saves receipts from liquor stores?

From the online claim form: "I have proof[s] of purchase (such as a receipt or a label with a UPC code)". So, if you don't have the receipt it seems the bottle label should also serve as proof.

Never bought a bottle of Templeton. No refund necessary.

I've never bought a bottle either, but I've definitely had the stuff "6 or more times" (the highest option on the claims form) in bar settings, usually in cocktails or in rounds paid by the group ;), so I claimed that part. No receipts required. If I get a few dollars, I'll probably buy a shot of Templeton; I don't want to make any money off them, it's the principle of the thing that matters.
