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.
