This unique liqueur became famous in the reign of King Edward VII when, at the request of the King's doctor, it was produced as a warming drink for His Majesty to take after winter morning rides in his new horseless carriage. The distinctive smooth ginger flavour is perfectly balanced by a pleasingly clean, dry finish.
Amazing with Demi-sec sparkling whites, but get the amount right not too much, just hint in the drink is best. Bought it at the Hampton Flower Show.

I purchased this for my Dad for Christmas as a change. He absolutely loves it and has described it as liquid gold! I am sure there will be none left for me to try when I visit!

Like some of the others, had this on a recent shoot. Great stuff, however in hindsight not the greatest thing to do after having drank the bar dry the previous night

Tried this at a restaurant tonight, I love Ginger so King Ginger jumped out at me from the desert menu and it is the most lush drink! I think it would be perfect with honey and fresh lemon when you have a cold, actually I think it'd be perfect anytime :-)

Last Wednesday Ball's Bros in St James's combined it with a Rioja 1:6.Guaranteed to break the ice at any party. DELICIOUS.

Very nice! i sampled this at the Bristol Food

Wow! this hits the spot. A really gingery liqueur, but with a lightness too. Just right on a snowy day like today, but i reckon I'll be drinking it through the year. can't wait to try it in summer with tonic and lime.

I just tried this for the first time and it is incredible. It is the perfect balance of sweet and spice--just sweet enough, and light-bodied--not at all syrupy. It is pleasantly spicy and not too zingy. Very refreshing; a perfect after-dinner drink. I have read that it pairs well splashed over vanilla ice cream and I look forward to trying this combination soon.
