The Kings Ginger Liqueur
Specifically formulated by the Berry Bros. The King's Ginger Liqueur was made for King Edward VII in 1903.
KING Edward VII reigned from 1901 to 1910 and was a customer of Berry Bros. The Royal Physician was concerned about the monarch's health, exposed as he was to the elements indulging in one of his preferred pursuits, driving his 'horseless carriage' - a Daimler.In 1903 he commissioned, therefore, Berry Bros. to formulate a liqueur which would warm and revivify His Majesty; the result, a rich, golden nectar with a pronounced spicy ginger emphasis and delightfully crisp flavour.
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 to give it an unexpectedly fresh lift. It has been appreciated by bon viveurs, sporting gentlemen and high-spirited ladies ever since
