The King's Ginger Liqueur - 50cl | 41% ABV

The King's Ginger was specifically formulated by Berry Bros. & Rudd in 1903 for King Edward VII. King Edward VII literally lived life in the fast lane. He would endlessly drive his horseless carriage (a Daimler), whatever the weather. So much so, that in 1903 the Royal Physician became concerned about the monarch’s health. So, he called on Berry Bros. and Rudd for a solution, a high strength liqueur that would warm and revivify His Majesty. Crafted from fresh ginger, (for centuries celebrated for its medicinal properties) and enlivened by the judicious addition of citrus oil, The King’s Ginger was born. Rich, golden and delightfully crisp in flavour, it helped King Edward stay colourful and ready for whatever came next.

The King’s Ginger is created by the careful maceration of ginger root enlivened by the judicious addition of citrus in the form of lemon peel. Although warming and heartening on a cold day as originally intended, it is a splendidly uplifting tonic to be enjoyed on its own all year round as well as in any number of cocktails and long drinks. 

The appearance is seductively golden. On the nose an instantly warming aroma of ginger, zesty lemon, sherbet and golden syrup leads to an initial sweetness on the palate that is followed by bite of ginger and lemon notes. The mouth feel is deliciously satisfying and warming and the finish is lingering and extremely long.
