The distillery site, on the banks of the River Clyde at The Queens Dock, was built by John Morrison of Morrison and Mason, and was a vast commercial wet dock opened by Queen Victoria in 1877.

Morrison and Mason also built the City Chambers Building and General Post Office on George Square, The Clyde Navigation Trust Building, now Clydeport, Ruchill Hospital and Paisley Town Hall amongst many more.

The Queens Dock closed in 1969 and was subsequently in-filled to create the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre site.
