Justerini & Brooks
Justerini & Brooks were founded in 1749 in London and very quickly gained a reputation for both quality and service, a reputation that has been maintained ever since. First awarded the Royal Warrant by King George III, the firm was granted this honor by every successive monarch including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Justerini & Brooks also received the Royal Warrant from Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother. In addition the past Managing Director, Geoffrey Jameson, held the office of Clerk of the Royal Cellars from 1963 to 1978 and in July 1992 this personal appointment of Her Majesty the Queen was taken up by Edward Demery, our Chairman.
The firm's founder, Giacomo Justerini, arrived in London from Bologna in 1749 in pursuit, not of his fortune, but of a beautiful opera singer, Margherita Bellino, with whom he had fallen in love.
