Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
David Ross & Sons wine & spirit merchants and restaurateurs of Glasgow, Scotland appears to have been registered as a wine and spirit company in March 1925 , having previously traded under this title since the 1890s. Originally founded by David Ross , proprietor of The Gordon Bar, Mitchell Street, Glasgow , the company expanded owning a number of properties in the city centre.
Under the directorship of George Ross , presumably his son, and Dugald McInnes , both wine and spirit merchants , the firm became a subsidiary company of G & J Maclachlan Ltd , brewers, distillers and retailers of Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland , which in turn merged with Tennent Caledonian Breweries Ltd , of Glasgow, Scotland , in 1963.
