goldbloomIn the late 19th Century Holsten Brauerei first began trading in the UK when they purchased a brewery in WandsworthLondon. Holsten Pils was first imported into the UK in 1952 thus creating the premium packaged lager market. In 1979 the first of many award winning TV ad campaigns was launched featuring actorDonald Pleasence. In the mid-1980s Holsten became the UK’s number one selling premium packaged lager. Up until 1999, Holsten UK operated as a joint venture between Holsten Brauerei and S & N., but in that year the joint venture was dissolved and Holsten UK took over responsibility for the on-trade, followed in 2000 by the off-trade.
