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.
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
Berry Bros - Please bring back the original! You can see from the comments that this is not the same and tastes awful. I so liked it before.
Like all the other recent reviews of the new recipe, absolutely horrible. Yes the bottle is pretty but the taste is awful. All I got was a throat burned by the overpowering ginger. Bring back the old recipe and increase the ABV to what it was previously. Do BB&R read these reviews?
This kings ginger is absolutely horrible. We pored it away!
