Royal Rose craft certified organic, Maine-made simple syrups and drink mixes capture flavor straight from the farm! By using whole ingredients, and no preservatives or artificial flavors, each syrup makes for an incredibly rich experience.


"viscous, vibrant and made from organic ingredients" -The New York Times

Royal Rose Syrups & Mixers has been packing incredible flavors into small bottles since 2010. Topher Mallory and Matt Page, co-owners of Split Rock Distilling, brought the company under their roof in 2018.

The two companies share a commitment to sustainability, authenticity, and extraordinary quality. “Royal Rose Syrups were the perfect pairing for our organic, grain-to-glass spirits,” Topher says. “With Royal Rose, every single element in a cocktail can have the same quality, sustainability, and attention to detail."

We make and bottle everything for Royal Rose on site in Newcastle, Maine, sourcing as much organic produce and botanicals as locally as we possibly can. “We already live the small-batch life,” says Matt. “Royal Rose bottles fit perfectly alongside our barrels."
