Nose: An instantly warming aroma of ginger, zesty lemon, sherbet and golden.
Palate: Initial sweetness followed by a bite of ginger and lemon. Deliciously satisfying and warming mouth feel.
Finish: Lingering and extremely long.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Possesses a pretty golden hue. Smells like gingerbread cake and crystallized ginger. Root ginger is intensified on the palate, with a lovely, yet subtle aftertaste of sugar. Should be a fun one to play with in cocktails. (Mar 2013)
This emphatically ginger liqueur was specifically formulated by Berry Bros. & Rudd in 1903 for King Edward VII. Rich and zesty, it was created to stimulate and revivify His Majesty during morning rides in his new horseless carriage and has been appreciated by bon viveurs, sporting gentlemen and high-spirited ladies ever since.
The King’s Ginger is a high-strength liqueur created by the careful maceration of ginger root, enlivened by the judicious addition of citrus in the form of lemon oil for an unexpectedly fresh lift.
