Berry Bros. & Rudd The King's Ginger Liqueur: A Royal Tipple with a Zestful Punch

A Legacy Steeped in Spice: The King's Ginger Liqueur

For over a century, Berry Bros. & Rudd's The King's Ginger Liqueur has been a cherished tipple for those seeking a touch of warmth and invigorating spice. Originally formulated in 1903 for King Edward VII, this historic liqueur boasts a rich heritage and a flavour profile that continues to captivate discerning palates.

Aromatic Allure: A Symphony of Ginger and Citrus

The King's Ginger immediately entices with its vibrant, golden colour, hinting at the sunshine-like warmth within. On the nose, a powerful wave of ginger asserts itself, presenting a clean, fresh, and unmistakably spicy aroma. The ginger's potency is beautifully balanced by subtle citrus notes, reminiscent of zesty lemon peel. This interplay creates a captivating and inviting fragrance, promising a delightful taste experience.

Tasting the Tradition: A Spicy Delight

The first sip of The King's Ginger delivers a burst of flavour that lives up to its aromatic promise. The ginger takes centre stage, offering a potent yet smooth wave of spiciness that lingers pleasantly on the tongue. The warmth is akin to a comforting embrace, perfect for chilly evenings or those seeking a touch of invigoration.

Beneath the ginger's vibrant presence, a subtle sweetness emerges. This is not an overpowering sugary character, but rather a delicate honeyed note that complements the spice and adds a touch of complexity. Hints of citrus dance on the periphery, adding a refreshing lift and preventing the ginger from becoming overwhelming. The finish is clean and lingers with a pleasant warmth, leaving you wanting another sip.
