We began when Dr. R.M. Rose reIn 1867, R.M. Rose was founded in the heart of Atlantturned to Atlanta after serving as a doctor in the Civil War. What does a struggling economy of a country ravaged by war need?
Dr. Rose was recognized as the best judge of whiskey in the South and experimented with various ways of producing his Georgia corn whiskey; the demand of his customers attests to the true quality of his liquor. He was the first in the region to age his corn whiskey in charred oak barrels. A tradition we follow today.
From 1867 to 1920, R.M. Rose continued producing whiskey throughout Georgia and Tennessee. The prohibition took effect in 1920 with a nationwide ban on the production, sale, and transportation of any alcoholic beverage. Before shutting our doors due to the prohibition, R.M. Rose was the standard of whiskey.
We’re bringing it back.
We are producing R.M. Rose whiskey the same way R.M. Rose himself did; with tried and true methods.
Our new distiller has been built from the ground up; we cut, welded and molded every piece of wood and steel to bring the R.M. Rose whiskey back to life.
ASK THE REVENUE OFFICER
In 1901 Atlanta, the home of R.M. Rose, started confiscating “fake” imitation liquors through Revenue Officers. R.M. Rose was the only dealer in Atlanta to receive a letter of recognition from Mr. Wim Strauss, the head of the Revenue Officers, attesting to the quality and skill found in our whiskey.
So, go ahead, ask the Revenue Officer, he’ll tell you we’re the best.
