Carlsberg has been present in Hong Kong since 1923. This made Carlsberg Hong Kong’s first imported quality beer and secured the brand’s long standing position as one of the most popular brands in the market.
Carlsberg Brewery Hong Kong Ltd. was first established as a joint venture with the East Asiatic Company. It was thereafter inaugurated by the Danish Queen, HM Margrethe II, in 1981. Production was moved to the brewery in Huizhou in Southern China in 1999.
Nowadays, Carlsberg Hong Kong is wholly-owned by the Carlsberg Group. We market and distribute the flagship Carlsberg brand in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau, as well as a portfolio of some of the best-selling beer and cider brands (including third-party brands) such as Kronenbourg 1664, HK YAU, Somersby, Jolly Shandy, SKOL, Asahi and Guinness. In addition, Carlsberg Hong Kong is the exclusive distributor of Nikka Japanese whisky, Brooklyn craft beer and a number of wine brands.
