The King's Ginger Liqueur has been through several incarnations since King Edward VII's physician asked posh wine merchants Berry Bros (pre-Rudd) to knock up a warming concoction for the monarch to keep in his flask while driving his Daimler (true story).
After production spells in the Netherlands, King's Ginger is now made in the UK with more ginger and a toned-down alcohol content. Packed with fiery ginger spice and balancing zingy citrus, King's Ginger Liqueur is perfect on its own on a cold winter day, or served over ice with a splash of tonic in the summer.
I normally drink/sip my liqueurs straight, but not this one due to the very strong ginger and lemon! It needs smoothing out, and probably best used on the rocks. Maybe I’ll use it like a gin in a cocktail. Good luck. I’ll admit my sense of taste has changed in old age, and I’m more used to whisky.
