The origins of Stone's Ginger Wine the UK's favourite ginger wine are well documented. The drink's roots go back to 1740 when a company called The Finsbury Distilling Company was founded in the City of London.

The drinks business was booming and distilleries were flourishing across London. This was the era of Hogarth's 'Gin Lane' and the widespread drunkenness in parts of London was becoming cause for concern, with the result that, in 1751, an Excise Act was passed, prohibiting distillers from selling directly to the public.
