Spirit of the streets

More than just a beloved local watering hole, the Royal Hotel is an icon. A landmark around which a community was built and thrived for more than 130 years; a place to connect, reflect and celebrate.

While the doors have long since closed and the kegs emptied, the spirit of the Royal lives on within the walls – a spirit that is at the heart of Darling Distillery.

From the modest beginnings of three mates with time, space and a passion for process, Darling has quickly become a celebrated favourite of connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike, a brand synonymous with the good life.
