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.

    I tried it for my birthday celebration and fell in love with the aromatic explosion in my mouth, and taste heavenly.

    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.

    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
