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 bespoke 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. While wonderfully uplifting and enjoyable on its own, The King’s Ginger comes to life in social situations (just as King Edward did). It is the perfect foundation for any occasion, including these delicious cocktails: King’s Ginger Hot Chocolate, King’s Mulled Cider We’re delighted that the latest iteration of The King’s Ginger was awarded a gold medal by the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2021.
