About Diageo

Diageo is the world’s leading premium drinks company, a business built on the principles and foundations laid by the giants of our industry.

Today we stand on the shoulders of these giants and act with the same entrepreneurial spirit.

We are a young company born of an incredible entrepreneurial legacy. The success of Guinness®, Smirnoff®, Johnnie Walker®, Tanqueray® and many more brands led to the formation of our company in 1997. And we only thrive today because of the talent of our people to grow our brands, old and new, and keep them strong.

Our purpose, celebrating life, every day, everywhere means that our brands are part of celebrations big and small. We believe that living our purpose in full is to make the most of life - to be the best you can be at work, at home, with friends, in the community, and for the community
