United Breweries to export Indian wine to UK

Bangalore-based conglomerate United Breweries Group – owned by industrialist Vijay Mallya – plans to export its Indian wine labels to the UK, starting with three of its brands later this year.

The world’s second largest spirits manufacturer plans to mimic the successful roll out of its Indian lager counterpart Kingfisher by distributing its red and white wines through Indian restaurants before moving to supermarkets in the UK.

The company has already signed distribution agreements with two importers and distributors and hopes to see the wines hit the market by this autumn.
