The inspiration for the choice of brand name was influenced by the coloured birds, Kingfishers, which can be found in India with over 70 different varieties. Kingfishers are particularly prevalent in Bangalore, the garden city of India, which is also headquarters to The United Breweries. In the beginning Kingfisher Lager's distribution was somewhat confined to Southern India, but has now grown to become India's leading brand, with share approaching 36% of the total beer market. The United Breweries operates in over 20 countries across Europe, North America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Far East.
