If you've ever sipped a margarita, a cosmopolitan or a banana daiquiri, there's a good chance that you've had Rose's Lime Juice. These popular drinks and countless others are made with lime juice, and Rose's just happens to be the biggest brand in the lime juice market.

Rose's came about in 1867 when a wonderful coincidence occurred: Lauchlin Rose patented his process of preserving lime juice without using rum at the same time that the 1867 Merchant Shipping Act -- requiring British sailors be provided lime -- was passed.
Back in the days of tall ships with wind-filled sails, Britannia ruled the waves, and a long ocean voyage often meant a death sentence for weary sailors. Scurvy was the scourge of the seven seas, killing more sailors than storms and foreign navies combined.
Doctors discovered that limes prevented that disease, and though the sailors grumbled a little about losing their rum, it wasn't long before sweetened lime juice from Rose's West Indian limes was a shipboard staple.
In 1901, the first bottle of Rose's arrived in the United States, 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, and was eventually acquired by Schweppes in 1957. When Cadbury Schweppes acquired Mott's in 1982, Rose's moved across the ocean to join the Mott's family. The product line thrived under Mott's management, adding Rose's Grenadine, Rose's Triple Sec and
Rose's Sweet and Sour to its 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 added Cosmopolitan, Blue Raspberry, Sour Apple and Pomegranate Twist. Then, Rose's added a new twist for the industry by creating the first-ever light mixers that included one-third fewer calories. The two new flavors were Cosmopolitan Light and Tropical Fruit Twist Light.
Today, Rose's is part of Plano, Texas-based Dr Pepper Snapple Group, an integrated refreshment beverage business marketing more than 50 beverage brands throughout North America.
