Scotland’s Best-Selling Beer

Tennent's History

Tennent’s Lager is Scotland’s best-selling beer and has been made with pride in the heart of Glasgow since 1885, but is famous far beyond its home city. Scotland is a nation famed for its creativity and innovation, and when you think of ‘Great Scots’, the story of Hugh Tennent is an extraordinary one.

A young Hugh Tennent discovered pilsner style beer in Bavaria and returned to pioneer the launch of Tennent’s Lager in 1885, believed to be the UK’s first lager.

Today, the Tennent’s Lager recipe remains true to the one introduced by Hugh more than 130 years ago, using 100% Scottish barley, the finest Herkules hops and the fresh water of Loch Katrine. It is quite simply Scotland’s favourite beer.
