A. Le Coq

1807 ‒ Birth of A. Le Coq


A . Le Coq & Co. traded in drinks and the company had been founded in 1807 by a Prussian family of the same name, who were descendants of the Huguenots who had fled France in the 17th century.

In the 1820s, Albert L. J. Le Coq moved to London so he could trade with products of the family’s wine manor. He soon started bottling and exporting Russian Imperial Stout under his own name. He ordered this special dark and strong top-fermented beer that was brewed specifically for the Russian market from large breweries in London. In his old age, A. Le Coq sold his London company to the Sillem family in 1870s.
