Description: King's Ginger was specifically formulated by Berry Brothers in 1903 for King Edward VII.
This high strength liqueur has been created by the careful maceration of ginger root for 1 month, enlivened by the judicious addition of citrus in the form of lemon oil, and finished off with a touch of Glenrothes '88.
Rich and zesty, the liqueur was created to stimulate and revivify His Majesty during morning rides in his new horseless carriage - a Daimler.
It has been appreciated by bon viveurs, sporting gentlemen and high-spirited ladies ever since.
Try it long and refreshing with ginger ale, mint, lemon and cucumber perfect for a sunny afternoon.
Or just add a large dash to your champagne for a delightfully alternative Ginger Royale.
Review: I came across Kings Ginger when using this site, looking for a ginger based drink as a present for my husband. Some ginger products fail to impress, but this one hit the spot - going by the rate of consumption once opened! I am surprised that this drink was unknown to us, being lovers of anything ginger. Highly recommend it!

Review: An English liqueur that can actually compare to the best french and italian ones. I\'ve no idea why this drink remains under the radar as it has a lot of qualities. The ginger taste is strong but not over powering and I\'m reminded of a ginger whiskey mac with a citrus scent. It hasa a long aftertaste and feels almost nourishing, highly spiced and trust me on this one it goes well, slightly mulled with chinese food as an alternative to rice wine. Take it with you on a cold winter\'s walk.
