R.M. Rose & Co. Distillers
890 Franklin Street Dillard, GA 30537 706-982-8115
NOT SINCE PROHIBITION... HAS A WHISKEY BEEN FINE ENOUGH TO BEAR
THE R.M. ROSE NAME.
With some of the richest history in the trade, the R.M. Rose Company helped set the standard for American whiskey as we know it today.
With that same pioneering spirit, we have been working hard, and have spared no expense in building beautiful old-fashioned copper pot stills and reviving the classic recipes, to bring you the finest whiskies on earth.
Dr. R.M. Rose, who was an expert and recognized as the best judge of whiskey in the South, set about to open the R.M. Rose Company which until it's doors closed due to prohibition helped set a standard for the way modern liquor manufacturers/distributors produce, advertise, and distribute their products.
In the course of his experience with the handling and distilling of fine liquors, Dr. R.M. Rose was the first to age corn whiskey unique to the region in charred oak barrels.
