King’s Ginger is made in Holland from a distillate of macerated ginger root and lemon peel. It was first launched in 1930s but benefitted from a packaging facelift and was re-launched in 2010.
King Edward VII reigned from 1901 to 1910 and is said to have been a thoroughly sociable chap who amongst other activities enjoyed driving his horseless carriage, a Daimler. Legend has it that his physician was concerned about Edward’s health, exposed as he was to the elements in his new automobile. Thus he commissioned Berry Bros. & Rudd, the King’s wine and spirits merchants to formulate a liqueur which would warm His Majesty. In 1903 King Edward VII granted Berry Bros. their first Royal Warrant.

Berry Bros. & Rudd can trace its origins back to 1698 when the Widow Bourne founded her shop opposite St James’s Palace. 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.

Avaliação e degustação


Experimentado em 01/12/2014

Aparência:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Gingerbread, lime and zesty bitter orange marmalade - perhaps more citrus than ginger.

Sabor:

Syrupy, fiery hot ginger and clove spice only partially tamed with acacia honey with zesty lime and orange.

Aftertaste:

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.
