William Thomas Solomon built up a substantial brewing, malting, bottling, aerated waters, and wine and spirits business which traded as W. T. Solomon & Co. William became the tenant of the Newton Stewart Brewery after Bryce Wright died in 1864, and then acquired it when it was offered for sale in 1880. In 1898 the South-Western Brewery Company Ltd was established to buy his various drinks businesses for £30,000.
