Ginger Flavoured Whisky Liqueurs

The King’s Ginger is wonderfully uplifting when enjoyed on its own and comes to life in many delicious cocktails. It’s the perfect foundation for any occasion.

First crafted by Berry Bros. & Rudd for King Edward VII in 1903, The King’s Ginger is golden in colour and delightfully robust in flavour. A revitalising and warming spirit that brings people together.

Colour: Hay and straw, rich golden syrup.

Nose: It is unmistakably Ginger – a cloud of fresh natural ginger with a faint aura of zesty lemon swiftly entices the first sip.

Palate: The initial flow of ginger syrup sweetness is gently interrupted by the tingle of fresh ginger and a subtle and gentle uplift of lemon citrus. Warm, fulfilling and of great length.

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 high strength 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.

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!

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.
