Place of Origin

Maker Red Rock Bottling Co.

Maker Details The Red Rock Company was founded in 1885 by Lee Hagan and G. T. Dodd of Atlanta, Georgia. Dodd initially introduced ginger ale as the company's first product, which became popular in the Southern U.S. By 1938, Red Rock was an early leader in the distribution of carbonated beverages, distributing 12-ounce bottles by way of a distribution network of 200 bottlers. By 1947, Red Rock products were bottled in 45 of the 47 U.S. states but by 1958, the company's success began to decline. Red Rock Cola was endorsed by famous baseball player Babe Ruth. Posters of his endorsement were printed in 1939.
