The Finsbury Distillery Company Ltd., (Borco Marken Import GmbH & Co KG), London, England, UK.
established the Finsbury Distillery in 1740. Besides Finsbury Gin it was
responsible for making numerous well-known drinks including Stone’s Ginger
Wine. Charles Maxwell of Thames Distillers is the 8th generation
descendent of Joseph Bishop, making them the oldest unbroken lineage in Gin
Unfortunately, the Finsbury Distillery closed and at some point the company was sold. In recent times companies such as Constellation Europe Ltd have bought it and (we believe) Borco Import GmbH in Germany has owned it since 1994.
Borco was established in 1948 and is a family run business. In 1972 they entered into the wine and spirits business, today marketing over 60 spirit brands and is a leader in Germany, and a major player in Europe. Their marketing motto for Finsbury is "Originals don't change".
