The King’s Ginger

The King's GingerBack during my trip to Glenrothes Distillery (details here) whilst out on the rolling hills with a Landrover and a Shotgun we tried some of this The King's Ginger both straight and with the addition of some whisky.

When I got back i just had to try more of it and give it a review.

"The King’s Ginger is the emphatically ginger liqueur that was specifically formulated by Berry Bros. in 1903 for King Edward VII"

This is fabulous both on it's own, as reviewed below, or as part of mixed with Glenrothes whisky, with the Select Reserve going especially well together.

Available to buy directly from Berry Bros & Rudd or from other specialists like The Whisky Exchange this will be a definite staple in my drinks cabinet from now on.

Many thanks to Berry Bros & Rudd for the generous official sample


Straight away as you approach the glass there's a massive hit of fresh grated ginger, mixed with lemongrass that's crushed together in a pestle and mortar fresh herbs and a hint of waxy lemon peel add to it... Very fresh

Sweet almost sugary sweet thick and waxy oily with a gorgeous lemon drizzle cake feel followed by a hit of ginger feels thick

Spicy ginger but think and coats the throat
