Founded in 1740 on the bank of the Molendinar Burn in the East End of Glasgow by Hugh and Robert Tennent, Wellpark is one of the country's most famous breweries. It's best-known product, Tennent's Lager, was first produced at the Wellpark Brewery in 1885 and is Scotland's market leading brand of pale lager.
The lager was first brewed in 1885, and in 1893 it won the highest award at the Chicago World's Fair. A distinctive, well-balanced lager whose sweet, malty flavours combine with a tangy hoppiness to create its crisp, refreshing character.
The lager was once famous for the design of its cans, which featured photos of various female models printed onto the side - known affectionately as "The Lager Lovelies". This feature was used by Tennent's up until the final campaign in 1989. Today, authentic original Lager Lovely cans are highly sought after among collectors. The can design is now a plain silver colour, with the company's trademark large red "T" featuring prominently.
The Tennent's brand is used for sponsoring music and sport including the Scotland's largest outdoor music festival: T in the Park.
