Caledonian (Heineken UK)

Founded in 1869 as Lorimer & Clark. In 1919, the company came into the ownership of Vaux, who closed the brewery in 1985. Following a management buyout in 1987, Caledonian was formed and brewing restarted. Partly taken over by Scottish Courage in 2004 and fully acquired by (then) Scottish & Newcastle in 2008. Came into the ownership of Heineken in April 2008 when S&N was taken over. McEwans and Youngers brands sold to Wells & Youngs in late 2011 but production of the draught versions of their beers remains at Caledonian for the present.
