A saga that began over a century and a half ago, continues on its path of service to the world with dedication, courage and an unflinching commitment to quality. Over the years the Company has embraced modernity and adapted to changing times. Yet, its basic values remain the same--Integrity, Craftsmanship, and Tradition. From old tradition sprang Mohan Meakin where the sanctity of ancient culture, technological development and craving for quality are artfully blended into the products.

The origin of Mohan Meakin traces back to Edward Dyer from United Kingdom who set up the first-ever brewery and made indigenous beer available to the Indians as well as Britons. He set up more Breweries at Solan, Simla, Murree, Rawalpindi and Mandalay. Another entrepreneur H G Meakin came to India from Britain and bought the old Simla and Solan Breweries from Edward Dyer and added more at Ranikhet, Dalhousie, Chakrata, Darjeeling and Kirkee. 

A distillery was then set up at Kasauli instead. Another distillery was set up in the historic city of Lucknow. In addition to meet the increased demand of Mohan Meakin Products an Industcrial Complex on 150 acres of land was set up in the year 1960 near Dehli in Ghaziabad Distt. of Uttar Paresh. Mohan Meakin have established fully equipped labratories at its various manufacturing centres manned by highly qualified and experienced technical persons to ensure the maintenance of high standard quality products.
