The company was being supplied by the Old Darling distillery of Prestonville, KY., but also lists the Peacock (RD #10, 7th District of KY) on its letterheads.

The "Creme de la Creme" brand was originally attributed to H. Hollander , listing in Cincinnati directories 1891-1902. Trager, who also registered the brand, list from 1891-1918. Presumably they took over the brand from Hollander.
