Product Description

The King's Ginger Liqueur, 50cl

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 Liqueur, 50cl
The King's Summer Cup: 25ml The King's Ginger, 75ml Cloudy Lemonade, 75ml Cranberry Juice
Background

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.

Tasting Note

A one-word tasting note for The King’s Ginger would read; ‘delicious’. However, if you prefer more detail we offer the following. 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 mouth feel. FINISH: Lingering and extremely long.

Jonathan Ray - The Telegraph:

“Opulently and sublimely gingery. It is quite simply the finest of winter warmers and post-prandial digestifs. Best served on the rocks, it is also delicious poured over vanilla ice cream”. Jonathan Ray - The Telegraph

Lorem ipsum dolor sit
Recommended Serves:

On its own: Pour a generous measure into a rocks glass. A delicious and warming digestif. Fantastic over ice too. Or try The King & Tonic: 50ml The King’s Ginger, 100ml Tonic Water, 1 dash of Angostura Bitters. Serve in a Collins glass with plenty of ice.

Discovered this delightful drink at a Whisky fair. After tasting some of the world's best whisky's, this liqueur was a fresh surprise, to clean the palette, and tingle the taste-buds. It's a unique drink, with a fairytale history, and can be enjoyed on it's own, or with a dab of whisky. For the price, it's a steal! Just be very careful, this velvet smooth refreshment packs a 41% punch! Don't risk driving, after a few sips.

Took a real gamble on this as I was in the mood to try something different, the other reviews were promising and there is a little history to this drink which intrigued me.

Well this is lovely, warm, and quite sweet - but not overly so for a liqueur. The ginger is powerful and tickles your throat and the lovely initial flavour is replaced after a few seconds with a warm glow that lingers comfortingly in your throat.

Already persuaded relatives to buy this after tasting my bottle.

This is currently my favourite drink.

Excellent on ice as a winter warmer. Fair gives you a wee glow!

The label also has directions for various cocktails or drinks with KG in it.

By far my favourite way is a tall glass with angostura bitters shaken out, ice in, double KG in it, topped up with ginger ale and a slice of lime. I could just sit and drink that all night. Well, I have and suddenly realised the alcohol creeps up and before I know it I have balance and coordination issues.

Now this really is a favourite of mine. Not a lot to say about it, I found out about it last year and all I can say is it didn't last long and I am not a drinker but I do like a tipple every now and again

I adore ginger! This seemed ideal for Christmas - a ginger liqueur. Sadly, the flavour is too subtle for my liking and when used as a mix with whisky is simply drowned out. Best for those who like a little taste of ginger, but no good for ginger diehards.

This Dutch-made liqueur is stronger, thinner and sharper than I expected.

Of good flavour, my instinct is that it would best be deployed as a cocktail component.

It is less gluggable as a aperitif / digestif because it is not unctuously glutinous like Drambuie. It is however just as warming!
