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 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.
“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
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.
A drop of this in a glass of prosecco is gorgeous. I only buy from Amazon when the price is lower and is on offer.Published 25 days ago by Mrs G I Waterhouse
I needed this liqueur for for my ginger pudding. It definitely enhanced the flavour of the baking. Well worth it and difficult to buy in shops.
