Lea and Sandeman, the wine merchants with a branch on Chiswick High Road, have been awarded a Royal Warrant.

A Royal Warrant of Appointment is granted as a mark of recognition to people or companies who have regularly supplied goods or services to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales or their Households.

Charles Lea said,"We are absolutely delighted to announce that Lea & Sandeman Co. Ltd. has been granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen, effective from the 1 April 2018.

"As the company approaches its 30th Anniversary (trading started on the 1 June 1988), this wonderful news gives cause for double celebration."

The Chiswick High Road branch was opened in September 2009. It was the fourth shop to open; they also have an outlet across the river in Barnes, one in Kensington Church Street and their HQ in the Fulham Road, Chelsea.

There are currently 816 Royal Warrant holders. They represent a cross-section of trade and industry, from individual craftspeople to global multi-nationals, ranging from dry cleaners to fishmongers, and from agricultural machinery to computer software.

A Royal Warrant is initially granted for up to five years to a named individual at a company, known as the "Grantee". An official Royal Warrant Display Document is sent to the Grantee which provides evidence of the authority to use the Royal Arms.
