The King's Ginger Liqueur

A very snazzy bottle of The King's Ginger liqueur from Berry Bros. & Rudd, presented at the lower strength of 29.9% ABV. As the story goes, King Edward VII's doctor was concerned about the monarch, and in 1903 asked Berry Bros. & Rudd to create something to warm him – and so the liqueur was born. This is its modern take on the historical tipple! A suitably warming sipper, or a great addition to Scotch whisky cocktails.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

A zip of lemon peel, with sweet candied ginger and fiery, drier root ginger on the finish.

Reviews for The King's Ginger Liqueur
Great on the slopes with skies underboot
First taste at aged 39 a few weeks ago up a mountain the the Alps after a french skiers breakfast of pain au chocolat and croissant on the ski lift: it is throughly enjoyed by all, more so than Jäger although Jäger does have its time and place (after apres lunch).

Awful
As everyone else has stated, quite simply the worst reformulation of a previously delicious, winter-warming ginger liqueur.

How to disenfranchise your entire (and loyal) customer-base.
An extraordinary disaster in Brand management!

Dreadful
Not a patch on the original. They've ruined a classic.

BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL
Not only was the original recipe far superior to the new formula...the original bottle was unique and striking. It now looks like every other spirit/liquor on the shelves. I am trawling the Internet to find an original bottle!

A great drink ruined, loyal repeat customers alienated and Brand value trashed. Well done - how not to do it
Appalled at the taste of the new version.
Calamitous recipe change, (cheaper to produce one suspects?), a reduced 29.9% means less duty incurred and therefore cost saving / price impact.
A great drink ruined, loyal repeat customers alienated and Brand value trashed. Well done - how not to do it.

Tastes vile
Used to be lovely, but new recipe is vile and fit only to pour down the sink. Ginger is so strong your mouth feels like you’ve eaten a Madras after drinking it. Horrible. Please bring back the old and far better recipe.

It's bad really bad was brought a bottle and am ready glad I didn't buy it. After one glass I poured the rest out

Used to be great...
I loved this but hadn't bought any in a while. Picked up a new bottle with the new shape, and was shocked at how sickly and lemony it now tastes. Such a shame. Oh well...I'm off to find a better ginger liqueur.

Try Making Your Own
To anyone, who like me and it would seem many others, dislikes the 'new' King's Ginger after experiencing the old, try this:
Take a 1 litre bottle of ordinary vodka and pour half a pint of it into a container that can be sealed. Add 1 ounce of soft brown sugar, 1 ounce caster sugar and a good couple of inches of finely sliced fresh ginger. After 3 or 4 days strain and add to the remaining bottle of vodka, plus a miniature bottle of glycerine. If a sweeter or drier tipple is required, then adjust the sugar to suit your taste. The remaining ginger need not be wasted - use in cookery or added as a garnish to your homemade 'Ginger tipple'.

Like cheap perfume
It used to be very sweet and very strong and very gingery. Intense and almost hurt your teeth, But natural flavours.
Now it tastes like cheap perfume
