In the 1848 Queen Victoria selected Balmoral Castle as her holiday residence, the original castle was deemed to small and unsuitable and the present was built in its place. Only three days after they arrived, John Begg made an invitation to Prince Albert to visit his distillery knowing he was interested in all things mechanical. To his surprise Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their three eldest children visited the next day. So impressed with the fine Lochnagar whisky, John Begg received a Royal Warrant of Appointment as supplier to the Queen. It is not until 1861 that John Begg used the Royal name, with trademark being obtained in 1876. (See Discovering Distilleries for more information)
