Phillips Beverage Company
Phillips Distilling Company|
Company was established in 1912.
Edward Phillips and his family emigrate from Minsk, Russia to Manitowoc, Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Michigan.
At the urging of his son Jay, a newspaper boy, Ed Phillips starts Ed Phillips & Sons, a wholesaler of candy, newspapers and magazines.
The 21st Amendment ends Prohibition and within months Phillips becomes the exclusive distributor for Hiram-Walker and Schenley, two of the largest distillers.
