OTHER - Sip this strong, sweet elixir of ginger at room temperature with Christmas cake or sticky ginger cake, and use in desserts and whisky cocktails, too
Suzy Atkins - Sauce - Sunday Telegraph - 16-Dec-2012

Riven with the intense, luxuriant fire of ginger and cut across with the bright bitterness of lemon, this rich and sweet liqueur was formulated at the turn of the 20th century to keep Edward VII on his toes during carriage rides in the cold. It would be well-recieved by hip flask owners.
Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph, 24 December 2011

Festive Tipple. No Christmas is complete without a bottle of something special to sip. The wine merchant Berry Bros created The King's Ginger liqueur in 1903 specially for King Edward VII, to stimulate and revivify His Majesty. With its delectable taste derived from macerated ginger root and lemon peel, the tipple remains a winter favourite.
The Daily Telegraph, 26 November 2011

A liqueur fit for a King- It's  not new indeed it's been knocking around since 1903 when it was created by Berry Bros & Rudd for King Edward VII to warm him up on wintry drives but we think it’s time to shout about King's Ginger Liqueur, which has just had a spruce up for the 21st century. This splendidly pokey liqueur is packed with spicy dried and raw root ginger flavours and a robust 41% abv hit, which make it a great addition to long drinks such as Mojito and Mules, and in warming nips like Rusty Nail/Whisky Mac style drinks Oh and you can also tip it over ice cream, pair it with chocolate and sip it neat Classy, versatile and authentic we think it deserves to be the next St Germain.
Imbibe - 11 Nov 09 With a history as colourful as the gun powder plot, The King's Ginger was created in 1903 for King Edward VII to warm the cockles of his heart while enjoying outdoor sporting pursuits. A rich, golden liqueur with a spicy, ginger profile, the King's Ginger tastes delicious in ginger-infused cocktails and long drinks.

The Story

The King's Ginger


The King's Ginger

The King's Ginger was specifically formulated by Berry Bros. & Rudd in 1903 for King Edward VII. Rich and zesty, the liqueur was created to stimulate and revivify His Majesty during morning rides in his new horseless carriage - a Daimler.

King Edward VII was a customer of Berry Bros. & Rudd, as was Edward's physician, who was concerned about the monarch's health, exposed as he was to the elements indulging one of his preferred pursuits, driving his 'horseless carriage'. Consequently in 1903 he commissioned Berry Bros. & Rudd to formulate a liqueur which would warm and revivify His Majesty. Ginger was chosen as the key ingredient as it has been celebrated for centuries for its medicinal properties.
The result is this emphatically ginger liqueur, which is rich and zesty and has been appreciated by bon viveurs, sporting gentlemen and high-spirited ladies ever since.

Although warming and heartening on a cold day as originally intended, it is a splendidly uplifting tonic to be appreciated on its own all year round as well as in any number of cocktails and long drinks.

Delicious mixed with champagne (try making our Ginger Royal Cocktail), with whisky (try our Ginger Mac recipe), or with wine to make mulled wine.
