What is a Royal Warrant?

A Royal Warrant of Appointment is a document that permits a company to use the Royal Arms in connection with its business in an appointed trading capacity.  It is granted for up to five years at a time as a mark of recognition for the ongoing supply of goods or services to the Royal Household.

These warrant holders have permission to display the Royal Arms and the words ‘By Appointment’ on their products, premises, vehicles and advertising materials.

Drinks brands and merchants with royal warrants from the late Queen include: Angostura, Martini, Bollinger, Mumm, Krug, Lanson, Roederer, Moët, Veuve Clicquot, Dubonnet, Harveys sherry, Dewar’s, Johnnie Walker, Justerini & Brooks, Lea & Sandeman, Matthew Gloag, Pol Roger, Symington Family Estates, Tanqueray, Gordon’s gin, Taylor’s port, Royal Lochnagar whisky, Pimm’s, Hine, Valvona & Crolla, Walker & Woodhouse and Windsor & Eton Brewery.

After a monarch’s death the warrants become void, but the holders can continue to use the crest for two years “provided there is no significant change within the company concerned”, according to the Royal Warrant Holders Association.
