Who is Carlsberg?
First, let’s get the size thing out of the way. We’re pretty big. Carlsberg UK is one of the country’s largest beer and beverage companies and part of the Carlsberg Group, the fourth largest brewer in the world.
Having been established in 1847 by our founder, J.C. Jacobsen – Carlsberg first exported its lager to the UK from Copenhagen in 1868, and Britain has remained a key market ever since. Today, we operate a landmark brewery in Northampton, a customer contact centre in Leeds and 12 Cask Marque accredited distribution depots across the UK, employing around 1,700 people.
Importantly, our company is engaged with society, which means it embraces its responsibilities and always strives to do the right thing.

We are proud to brew and sell premium quality beer and cider brands including Carlsberg, Carlsberg Export, Grimbergen, Poretti, Tuborg and Somersby Cider, as well as having the UK brand license for San Miguel and Mahou, but that’s not all…
