The Queen's Shopping Map

After a busy day ruling over the Commonwealth the Queen likes to sit down and relax with a large tumbler of the Famous Grouse Scotch Whisky. This is quickly followed by a glass of Thomas Hine cognac, drunk with a Bollinger champagne chaser.

You can discover some of the Queen's other favorite brands on Esri UK's By Royal Appointment interactive map. For centuries the British monarchy has issued royal warrants of appointment to shops and services who supply the royal court or royal family. Brands can then advertise the fact that they supply the royal family, which obviously adds a little prestige to their brand.

The Esri map shows companies and businesses around the world who have been awarded warrants of appointment by the Queen or the Prince of Wales. The businesses shown on the map are colored by type of business.
