I recently was given a new cake of rosin, W. E. Hill Dark rosin.  I like the rosin better than what I was using but W.E. Hill has been out of business since 1992.  Does anyone know who really makes it now?

Found this web site. Looks like it's made in England. But not really sure to be honest. Other sites I've checked out states the rosin is made the same way W.E. Hill used to make it.

Good point. I don't really know. Does it say on the cake of rosin where it is manufactured?
