Red Dog's Hitory

Red Dog Wine & Spirits is the vision of owner, Bard Quillman, Jr. a resident of Franklin, Tennessee, since 1979. Like many Malt drinkers, he started with blended Scotch and water, the gateway Scotch. He worked his way into Single Malts and found himself “Scotch Hunting” at local stores. He read a lot of books about “all things Scotch” and became frustrated with the lack of selection around Franklin and Nashville.

In 2000, Bard’s banking role in Franklin, TN, led him to an opportunity to buy a Wine and Spirits store. He took the existing store and moved it to a more convenient location and gave it new life and purpose as Red Dog Wine and Spirits.

In a nutshell, Red Dog Wine & Spirits was truly born of Bard’s passion for Single Malt Scotch, food and Wine pairing, and his love of making Franklin a more enjoyable place to live.
