Royal Lochnagar Receives Royal Treatment


Royal Lochnagar Distillery has finally been recognized for the royalty in their name after officially being awarded a Royal Warrant – a Royal Warrant is given to a company as recognition of being a regular supplier to the Royal Household – and means that Royal Lochnagar is permitted to display the monarch symbol of the Royal Arms on its casks and bottles at its distillery in Scotland [located a mere mile away from the Queen’s Balmoral Estate].

Royal Lochnagar Distillery’s first cask that is filled at the distillery following the awarding of the Royal Warrant, will be publicly displayed and has been hand-painted by Thomas Oates, the son of a Buckingham Palace senior carriage restorer.

Founded in 1845, the Diageo-owned distillery primarily uses manual methods of distilling single malt whisky, and becomes the fifth Diageo-owned brand to be awarded a Royal Warrant.
