About Old Jamaica

1908 - Desnoes and Geddes Limited was formed in 1918 by Eugene Peter Desnoes and Thomas Hargreaves Geddes
One morning, two youngsters came upon each other in the offices of West Indies Mineral & Tablewater Company in Kingston Jamaica. "My name is Thomas Hargreaves Geddes" said the newcomer. The other smiled "Glad to make your acquaintance! I've been here a bit. I'm Eugene Desnoes" And so for the first time, Desnoes and Geddes shook hands. Neither of them could have imagined that this would mark the beginning of an extraordinary partnership.
They shared what seemed to be then an impossible dream: to build a brewery to produce a Jamaican beer of international quality. It would be more than a decade before that dream would become a reality
