Customer Rating
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.

The King's Ginger Liqueur Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: The ginger aromas evolve, starting from ginger ale at first whiff, turning into ginger beer and then intense crystalised ginger. There's a hint of lemon sherbet in the background,too.

    Palate: Sticky in texture with the ginger growing in intensity and the lemon becoming more curd-like in nature.

    Finish: The fiery spice slowly dissipates, leaving a mouthcoating lemon sweetness.

    Comment: A useful liqueur to have in the cabinet. It's very warming at room temperature – perfect for taking in a hip flask on a winter walk. Chill and add to Champagne or sparkling wine and you have a spicy version of a classic Kir.

    Great drink in a terrible bottle - impossible to know how much (or little) is left, as it the glass is COMPLETELY opaque the bottle is so heavy that even when empty, it feels full! But as I said, the contents are great!

    I first sampled it 4 years ago when looking for a good bottle of whiskey for my father and absolutely loved it. I have bought it ever since and drink it neat with ice or as a mix with whiskey. The perfect way to warm you up on a cold winters night. Looking to order another three bottles as family and friends now love it.

    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.
