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.
