This was my first foray into the world of whiskey distilling and I’m glad I gave it a try. The tour begins with an overview of the company history. There’s a fantastic story of how the discovery of an old whiskey jug with the R.M. Rose stamp on it led to the resurrection of the once famous brand.
After learning the company history, viewing company artifacts and memorabilia, move on to the distillery for a first-hand glimpse into the world of whiskey production. Finally, finish with a tasting. Currently, five flavors are being distilled; Georgia Corn Whiskey, Mountain Apple, Blackberry, Good Neighbor (peach and lemon), and Fire on the Mountain. I’m not a whiskey aficionado by any stretch of the imagination, but I will say, these are the smoothest whiskeys I’ve ever tasted. Fire on the Mountain is a velvety cinnamon contribution which in my humble opinion is superior to any of the better-known cinnamon whiskeys out there.
