Butler Nephew & Co. was founded in 1730 in Porto, Portugal, by H. Burmester and John Nash who, like most British companies of that era, were merchants, under the name of Burmester, Nash & Co In 1789 Nash and Burmester disbanded the company and James Butler, then company employee, became a partner, renaming the company Nash, Butler & Co. Twenty years later, Butler made a business partnership with Mr. Nash, Mr. Nash's nephew. The company then became Butler, Tyndale & Co. In 1829 James Butler's nephew, Robert Butler, joined the company, turning the name back into Butler, Nephew & Co. They carry on a very conservative and exclusive trade, treating only the more expensive and high quality wines, establishing business relationships that still exist today, such as the one with Christie's Port Wine Producer & Shipper, Ldt, which currently owns the Butler Nephew & Co. brand.
