So the legend goes, in 1836 at the battle of San Jacinto, the Yellow Rose of Texas ensured General Sam Houston’s victory paving the way for the Republic of Texas. Located in the heart of Houston, Texas, Yellow Rose Distillery proudly honors the history of this great state.
Have you ever sat around with your friends, enjoying your favorite beverage, and had a dream to create something new? Founded in 2010, Yellow Rose is the brain child of two neighbors, Troy Smith and Ryan Baird. With the help of partner Randy Whitaker, Yellow Rose launched into the Texas market in 2012. We believe it takes a lot more than talk to create something great. After years of hard work and dedication, we are proud to be Houston’s first legal whiskey distillery!
We are fresh off of a Best In Class award for our Yellow Rose Outlaw Bourbon at the American Distilling Institute and a Double Gold for our Yellow Rose Straight Rye Whiskey at the San Francisco Artisan Spirits. With accolades like these it’s no wonder Yellow Rose Distilling is making its mark in the artisan spirits sector. We’re quickly finding homes in markets throughout the US.
We’re on the map in Texas, Michigan, Washington D.C., Wisconsin, Arkansas, Delaware, Minnesota, Illinois, Maryland and Tennessee but soon will be known amongst artisan connoisseurs throughout America. Yellow Rose is blossoming!
