The King's Ginger, Berry Bros. & Rudd - UK customers only

The King's Ginger, Berry Bros. & Rudd - UK customers only
The King’s Ginger is the emphatically ginger liqueur that was specifically formulated by Berry Bros. in 1903 for King Edward VII. Rich and zesty, it was created to stimulate and revivify His Majesty and has been appreciated by bon viveurs ever since. 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. It has been described by Jonathan Ray in The Field as “opulently and sublimely gingery.”

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.The King's Ginger

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A fine product Delicious neat or with champagne. Makes a good gift too. 03 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Winter is Coming This stuff is delicious. It can be good in cocktails in the Summer, but Winter (esp Christmas and New Year) is when this delicious drink comes into its own. Quite citrussy, as well as the advertised flavour, and very warming. If I had a criticism, I would say that I think it could be a little more gingery, i.e. it could do with a little more pep to drive away the cold. 26 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have had a terrific response from friends I sent the Ginger to ! Since finding your wine online my friends and I have enjoyed every bottle . Being quite elderly and not terribly good at choosing wine the few cases I have bought have been so much appreciated by friends and family . The green ginger has been such a terrific present for my God children . 05 May 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by A unique taste Unique liqueur - just the thing on a cold winter's evening. Christmas wouldn't be the same without it. 09 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than fantastic This is so good that I have had to by another bottle in anticipation (hopefully) of some really cold weather rather than enjoy it in the rain. As for maturity why keep it just drink it otherwise don't bother buying it this is not wine to keep or give it to anybody else , just give them Berry Bros details so that they can drink their own! 08 January 2014
