The King’s Ginger is a high-strength liqueur created by the careful maceration of ginger root, enlivened by the judicious addition of citrus in the form of lemon oil. The King’s Ginger is the emphatically ginger liqueur that was specifically formulated by Berry Brothers in 1903 for King Edward VII. Rich and zesty, it was created to stimulate and revivify His Majesty during morning rides in his new horseless carriage 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, refreshing drinks. A one-word tasting note for The King’s Ginger would read; ‘delicious’. However, if you prefer more detail, the following offered.
Appearance: Seductively golden. Nose: An instant warming aroma of ginger, zesty lemon, sherbet and golden syrup. Palate: Initial sweetness followed by bite of ginger and lemon tart. Deliciously satisfying and warming mouthfeel. Finish: Lingering and extremely long.
