History

The building The Helsinki Distilling Company occupies has seen use as a power plant for 30 years, and afterwards, as a soap factory, a meatball factory, a car wash, a wine cellar and an architect’s office. The distillery is located in the heart of Helsinki’s gastro-culture, The Abattoir (Teurastamo). True to its name, The Abattoir served as the city’s slaughterhouse from the 1930s to the 1990s.
