The founder of the mill is a great romantic.
As a young man he was a sailor and during long voyages the first foreign soil he had ever set foot on was Rhodes Island.
Skip
He saw a gentle graceful turtle-dove with a ring on its neck there.
Both island and dove are impressive images of youth.

Many years after the founder’s son helped him to build a mustard mill they called it «RODOS».
And mustard oil in a bottle, with a silhouette of a graceful dove bird, was named «Gorlinka».

The majority products of «RODOS» are sold under the trade name «Gorlinka».

Today at the mustard mill «RODOS» mustard seeds are being processed to mustard oil and mustard powder, from which table mustard is made.
