R.M. Rose & Company Distillers

RM Rose & Company Distillers is located in Dillard GA.  You can experience the whiskey distilling business through free tastings of all products, a tour of the distillery, and browsing the gift shop. Set in the beautiful North Georgia mountains, it’s a great day trip for the whole family.

In 1865 after the American Civil War had ravaged the south, most notably the city of Atlanta, a Connecticut man by the name of Rufus M. Rose, who had enlisted as a doctor for the Confederate Army, saw incredible opportunity in Atlanta amidst the despair and ruin that can only be caused by a war of such great magnitude.

In an effort to provide the public with quality spirits that were guaranteed safe, 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.

12 SPIES VINEYARDS & FARM

logo 2

12 Spies Vineyards is tucked between the North East Mountains to the west and the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest to the east. The sunsets are spectacular and views from the vineyard are stunning. There are many gardens filled with gourds, pumpkins, flowers and vegetables scattered around the 9 acre property. Bring your camera and enjoy a glass of wine from the covered deck or take a relaxing walk.

The four varities of grapes grown in the 12 Spies vineyard are Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Tannat and Traminette. All of these grapes grow well in the climate and altitude of Rabun Gap, Georgia. In addition, 12 Spies searches for grapes from the best vineyards for blending and to make their Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Seyval Blanc.

We offer a range of sweet to semi-dry to dry wines. Because individual tastes vary so much, with wine there is no right or wrong. You are your own expert when it comes to preference of sweet or dry.

This is our spot of Heaven on earth, and it is our wish that you will join us at 12 Spies Vineyards and enjoy our fine Georgia wines.

The Merry Christmas Shop

A Dillard landmark for almost 30 years, The Merry Christmas Shop has had several owners, each adding his or her specific style to the store. Although it was completely remodeled in 2005, another 1,400 square feet has recently been added creating wider aisles and more elbow room.  From top selling Department 56 Villages to the wildly popular Jim Shore figurines and Willow Tree angels, owner Ben McInnes handpicks items that he himself enjoys.  “If I don’t like it, it doesn’t come into the store.”

The shop also features college–themed merchandise from universities in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee. Also popular are the “Byers Choice Carolers,” famous for their Handcrafted-in-America label. McInnes also features a wide assortment of ornaments like ballerinas, cowboys (and girls), hunting and fishing designs and every imaginable combination in between. The shop’s inventory also offers décor items for autumn, Halloween and Thanksgiving.

McInnes says he has something for everyone!  “People will stick their heads in the door and comment, ‘Oh it’s just Christmas,’ then they take a second look and see all the wonderful seasonal gift items we have.  Then they browse for an hour.”

Located on the boardwalk, next to the Dillard General Store, The Merry Christmas Shop is a –MUST SEE.
