    Does anyone know where I can find out more about The Joseph Finch Distillery?

    Re: Joseph Finch Distilley

    It was established near Pittsburgh, in Schenley, in 1836 (or maybe 1850. Sources differ), by Joseph Finch. Finch's ancestors had been distillers as well. Golden Wedding was the company's number 1 brand. Schenley Distillers Corp. bought it in 1924.

    The Joseph Finch bourbon released back in 1997 had nothing to do with the Finch distillery, except for using the name. United Distillers (now Diageo) never revealed where that bourbon originated, but it wasn't at the Finch distillery.
