Now made in England at a lower strength, with the warmth provided by extra ginger in the recipe, this unique liqueur was created for King Edward VII to keep him warm on drives in his new open top Daimler car. The distinctive smooth ginger flavour is perfectly balanced by a pleasingly clean, dry finish.Tasting Notes (1)
Producer's Tasting Notes
Hay and straw, rich golden syrup.
It is unmistakably Ginger – a cloud of fresh natural ginger with a faint aura of zesty lemon swiftly entices the first sip.
The initial flow of ginger syrup sweetness is gently interrupted by the tingle of fresh ginger and a subtle and gentle uplift of lemon citrus. Warm, fulfilling and of great length.
Awful reformulation. The original was a punchy blend that added depth to a rye Old Fashioned. This codswallop manages to combine a waft of lemon drain cleaner with far too harsh a ginger fore palate. Doubtless `reimagineered' by a marketing type for those Millennials too lazy/stupid to do anything else than tonic over their drinks. BBR should be ashamed of themselves.
OMG what have they done to this amazing warming gingery liqueur. We have converted so many people to the original. Tried this new (dare I say ‘version’ as it is NOTHING like the original) Yuk yuk yuk. Please bring back the original
Shocking Cannot understand why they have changed the recipe for what used to be a lovely warming liqueur. Will not be buying again
I'm sad to say that a family favourite is no longer so! Now too medicinal and harsh on the palate. This was a great, warming and enjoyable liqueur, but such a shame someone decided 'to make it better' which went very wrong! We won't buy this again unless it reverts to the past recipe....a sad fami!y member to lose!!!!!
I have three unopened bottles, which I shall have to give away. Used to love it, but it's been ruined. Why would you change something that was so delicious? Have to find something else now.... Rating: 1 star
