Berry Bros. & Rudd has traded from the same premises at 3 St James’s Street for over 300 years and is the oldest wine and spirit merchant in Britain and possibly the world. The company remains family-owned and run.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 01/12/2014
Clear, golden amber.
Gingerbread, lime and zesty bitter orange marmalade - perhaps more citrus than ginger.
Syrupy, fiery hot ginger and clove spice only partially tamed with acacia honey with zesty lime and orange.
Very long lasting heat and lingering candied ginger. Hot enough to warm the cockles of a king. Overall: Syrupy sweetness is countered by 41% alcohol, zesty citrus and fiery ginger.
