Special Brew

A Special Brew

Did Sir Winston Churchill consider Carlsberg Special Brew the best beer in the world? Probably. It was created in his honour, when he visited our brewery in 1950. Which is why, behind the full-bodied malty flavour, you may detect a hint of cognac - the famous leader’s favourite after-dinner digestif.
