Duvel Moortgat Opens London Office In Shoreditch

Belgian brewery firm Duvel Moortgat is set to take up London office space as it looks to expand its presence in the UK market.

The company’s office will be located in the the Old Truman brewery in Shoreditch. The property was formerly home to the largest brewery in the capital, but a regeneration project over the past 15 years has seen the development transformed into a space occupied by businesses, retailers, restaurants, bars and galleries.

As a result of the move Duvel Moortgat will also take over responsibility for distributing its beers, a task that was previously managed by specialist beer importer and distributor, James Clay.

Matt Willson, Duvel Moortgat’s UK general manager, commented on the brewer’s plans for the future, as well as its new London office.

He said: “Our brands are in strong growth and we have an exciting programme of consumer, trade and brand initiatives, which we will be bringing to market later this year.

“This will include the launch of beers from Duvel Moortgat’s recent acquisition, Boulevard Brewery of Kansas City.

“Setting up our own office in Old Truman’s brewery in Shoreditch will give us the impetus to build a greater platform for Boulevard and all our existing, and future brands. All distribution, marketing and sales will be handled by the new office,” Mr Willson concluded.
