SHAPING HOUSTON: YELLOW ROSE DISTILLING

Yellow Rose Distilling in Houston, Texas is the product of three friends’ passion for the distilling industry. Ryan Baird started his career in the technology industry and his co-founders, Troy Smith and Randy Whitaker, were in the automotive and waste management industries. All three friends decided to leave their jobs and follow their dream of owning a distillery. What they lacked in experience, they made up for in curiosity and passion.  

The trio has moved from working with a 5 gallon still to a 650 gallon still in a matter of years. The name Yellow Rose is based off the story of Texas gaining its independence. Yellow Rose Distilling shares this emphasis on independence and taking a chance.

At Cadillac, we celebrate those whose passion and vision have reshaped our city, our lives and our culture - including the men of Yellow Rose Distilling.

Their continuous passion makes them some of the inspiring and driving persons shaping Houston.
