In 1824, small-town born Johan Daniel Grönstedt arrived in Stockholm to make a name of himself in the big city. After twelve years of working at various restaurants and establishments 28-year-old Johan Daniel took over Stiernan in the Old Town – a then celebrity spot serving as both restaurant and wine trade hub.
After a few successful years, the driven young man had created quite the reputation for his good beverages. In 1846 he opened the doors to his very own beverage trade shop J.D. Grönstedt & Co.
