It’s said that King Edward VII would drive his Daimler come rain or shine – such was his passion for the British outdoors.
In 1903, the Royal Physician approached Berry Bros. & Rudd. He asked us to craft a bespoke liqueur; something warming to revivify His Majesty on his winter outings. The result was The King’s Ginger, a unique and revitalising ginger spirit, with a hint of lemon zest, that has captured the hearts of drinkers for over a century.
Now, we’re thrilled to reveal the latest packaging of our The King’s Ginger bottle. It’s our most sustainable to date, crafted using a pioneering, zero-waste paper upcycled from disposable coffee cups, once destined for landfill. Yet, it remains steeped in heritage – the bottle is a reimagining of King Edward’s original saddle flask.
Many things have changed in 119 years, but one thing has remained constant: The King’s Ginger is a quintessentially British spirit for those who like to live adventurously.
