Our Founding Flavors: Rose's
If you know cocktails, then you know Rose's. Behind the bar for more than 140 years, Rose’s came about when Lauchlin Rose patented his process of preserving lime juice without using rum. At the same time, the 1867 Merchant Shipping Act was passed, which required that British sailors be provided lime to help prevent diseases such as scurvy. Although the sailors grumbled about losing their rum, it wasn’t long before the sweetened lime juice created by Rose became a shipboard staple.
In 1901, the first bottle of Rose's arrived in the U.S., introducing the brand's great taste and distinctive label to a whole new nation. After World War II, the brand saw a period of spectacular growth, adding Rose's Grenadine, Rose's Triple Sec and Rose's Sweet and Sour to its product line up. Even before the addition of Rose's Cocktail Infusions in 2003, the brand had grown to be used in more mixed drinks than any other non-alcoholic ingredient.
In late 2006, the Rose's Mojito Cocktail Mix family of mixers hit the scene. Available in traditional, passion fruit and mango, Rose's Mojito Mix makes it easy to elevate your mojitos - and your parties - from fashionable to unforgettable. In 2009, Rose's created new flavors for martini lovers, including cosmopolitan, blue raspberry, sour apple and pomegranate twist. These were closely followed by the first-ever light mixers with one-third fewer calories than their original counterparts in tasty flavors like Cosmopolitan Light and Tropical Fruit Twist Light.
Rose’s is still a partygoer’s favorite and the perfect way to take your party up a notch. The stylish and sophisticated fans of Rose’s mixers can find recipes and party tips at www.rosesmix.com and the nutrition facts for each flavor at www.dpsgproductfacts.com.
