However, this association was not so successful, and already in 1970, "Tuborg" and all its allies were still absorbed by the company "Karlsberg". In the USSR, Tuborg products became the first licensed brand and went on sale in the 1960s. Tuborg beer is very popular all over the world. The producer of this drink in Russia is Baltika Brewery.
