In the world of alcohol there is a huge amount of brands. As with all businesses, not all brands are their own companies but instead they are part of larger corporations. It’s easier to buy a company than to start one from scratch and make the booze yourself.

Below I’ve collected some tidbits on who owns who just because I was interested myself. Of course the situation with ownerships change all the time but I’ll try to keep the table current. The table will never be complete.

I’m not going to list all the brands from all the corporations. I only list famous ones and ones that might show up in my cocktails. Beers and wines are automatically left out of this table.
