Standard Distilling Co. listed from 1887-1918.

In 1892, the company was drawing liquor from warehouses of the J B Wathen & Bro. Co. distillery (RD #363, 5th District of KY) and from 1892 to at least 1898 was an outlet for the Peacock distillery (RD #10, 7th. Dist.): see the respective distillery listing pages for more details.

The Standard Distillery Co. had offices in most major cities in the US. They originally owned Distillery No. 9 in Pekin, IL (The Globe Distillery) and Distillery No. 3 in Milwaukee, WI. During the period 1900-1904, they acquired the Willow Spring distillery in Omaha, NE, the Mound City Distillery in St. Louis, MO., the Mill Creek Distillery in Cincinnati, OH. and the Altas Distillery in Peoria, IL. Snyder speculates that the Hanover brand was acquired when the Hanover Distillery (No. 19 in Peoria, IL) ceased operations (OBM6/74).

The 64th and 66th annual reports of the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce list Simon Block as President of this company in 1912 and 1914.

Brand names used by this company include: "Ben My Chree", "Bluefield Rye", "Day and Night", "Delicacy", "Gladiator", "Hanover Rye", "Lick Run ", "Lick Run ", "Mc Bride's", "Metropolis", "Rhimal Gin", "Royal Reserve", "Sweet Caporal", "Weldon", and "Yea Yea."
