Administrative history

The wine, liquor and general merchant company was established by Moses Moss with an office and store in Wynyard Lane, Sydney by 1858. After Moses' death in 1883, Louis Phillips became the principal of the firm. The company advertised throughout Australia focussing on the Dutch product Wolfe's Aromatic Schnapps. In 1946 its office was in Reiby Place, Sydney. Moses Moss & Co was later owned by Walter Cavel and Crawford & Co. Cavel's holdings were purchased by Universal Groceries who were bought out by G J Coles around 1955.
