Initially imported from the United Kingdom, Royal Club has been in The Netherlands since 1881. The brand owners Josiah Russell & Co from London opened a Dutch branch in Rotterdam in 1887. In 1939, the management of this branch was taken over by the Tims family, who officially took control of the company in 1949.
In 1969, the Tims family sold their company to Vrumona, who had been co-producing Royal Club since 1963. Respecting the brand’s traditions, Vrumona continued producing and selling Royal Club. The brand has ever since been home to both traditional British flavours such as Tonic and Ginger Ale, as well as typical Dutch flavours such as Orange and Cassis.
