United Breweries Limited (UBL) was founded on March 15, 1915, in Madras by Thomas Leishman, a Scotsman, also its first Managing Director. UBL manufactured and sold only bulk beer for troops of both the world wars. It was a classic case of role reversal – India being introduced to this ‘exotic’ brew and in turn becoming its major exporter.
