Finnieston distillery

Ebenezer Connal, Founder of the Finnieston Distillery

The Finnieston Distillery is one of the thirty-three lost distilleries in the City of Glasgow. The Finnieston Distillery was formed on the lands of Stobcross, at that time held by John Orr of Barrowfield, who named it after Mr Finnie, who was a tutor in his family.


The Finnieston Distillery was originally founded in 1824 by Ebenezer Connal,[1] on Finnieston Street in the City of Glasgow, Scotland.


Like many of the distillers of his time Ebenezer was known to add ingredients to the whisky to enhance the whisky’s flavour. He encouraged mixing the whisky with herbs and heathers to make the drinking experience as enjoyable as possible.


Operations at the distillery were suspended in 1827.
