Blog: Olly WehringHeineken calls time on S&N

Olly Wehring | 23 November 2009

The name Scottish & Newcastle (S&N) today disappeared from brewing in the UK, following its official name change to Heineken UK.

The group, formed in 1960 by the merger between Scottish Brewers and Newcastle Breweries, was bought and carved up by Heineken and Carlsberg in April 2008 for a total sum of around GBP8bn.

Heineken took S&N's UK business and, after keeping the name for more than a year, has today officially changed it to Heineken UK, complete with a new website.

The S&N name will continue to be used by the company's pub management business, which has become the Scottish & Newcastle Pub Company, reflecting the development of this part of the business.
