JOHN LOVIBOND & SONS HISTORY

THE LOVIBONDS TIMELINE

Today the Lovibond name is known throughout the brewing and food science
industry because of the invention of the Tintometer, by Joseph Williams Lovibond.

The Tintometer uses a series of coloured glass slides to measure and classify
colours in liquids.

The system was widely adopted across a large number of industries, including brewing.

Today, brewers around the world still classify the colour of their beer and buy their
malt using the Lovibonds colour scale.

Many thanks to FPF Edwards for supplying his book,
Lovibonds Family Brewers and Wine Merchants, a History
, published February 1997.
