Roylancer Distillery Co was inspired and founded by two brothers, Benjamin, and Robert Roylance. The two brothers share a passion for whisky and all things made from spirits.
The duo’s dream is to produce Australia’s best premium vodka and to help locals along the way. Robert and Benjamin have set up their family operated distillery along the Murray River, in the township of Mannum in South Australia.
So why they name Roylancer?
Our surname Roylancer traces its lineage back to the Norman nobles during the medieval era of Britain. The Roylancer family was awarded ownership of the ‘rye lands’ (farmlands) for their contribution to the victory of the battle of the Hastings in 1066AD circa, who had loyally served William the Duke of Normandy, or also known as William the Conqueror. Since then, the Roylancer family has held its own coat of arms, their motto was “Non-Ultima” in Latin, or understood in English as “Not the Last”. The family lineage was directly responsible for overseeing and protecting many of the farmlands of medieval England.
The Roylancer Distillery Co. and its owners are proud of their family heritage and have decided to honour all the Roylancer family members throughout the world, wherever they may be, past and present, with a smaller representation of the once controlled ‘rye lands’ of medieval England.
