The King's Ginger Liqueur Bottling Note

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.

King's Ginger Liqueur Reviews

Different but excellent

I have bought this for several years and have to say that that whilst the recipe may be different i like them both equally. You can't beat that extra kick of ginger during the darker, cooler evenings and it does just the job in a hip flask when out walking.

New recipe is awful. Why did they do it?

My wife and I have just been trying to figure out what’s gone wrong here. We loved the previous version - this new recipe is a disaster. And as others have said - a brilliant liqueur ruined!

Somebody has changed the recipe in a money saving exercise and the results are awful

If I could give a lower rating I would. Used to gift this to friends from around the world who loved it's uniquely British history and character. Now ruined with the recipe change, meaning no more buys from me. Awful changes, really ruined a fantastic recipe.

Fresh Ginger

OG Kings Ginger tasted of Candied Ginger, this is less sweet and tastes of fresh ginger. I prefer it. Bottle looks great as well.

Such a Shame

This used to be phenomenal, now it barely gets touched. Why they decided to change it from the old recipe I don’t know but unfortunately there are no immediate plans to change back. I actually contacted them.

The rest of this is going down the sink and I’ll be ordering Giffard’s ‘Ginger of the Indies’. It’s not as good as the old ‘King’s Ginger’ but it’s streets ahead of this. Please bring the old recipe back!

I cannot understand why they changed such a wonderful liqueur. The new taste is awful and I will not be buying anymore.

Horrible. Do not buy unless under extreme duress.

Absolutely adored the old black bottle Kings Ginger. Very sad they stopped this and having read so many poor reviews of the new version I decided to avoid. However, I was bought a bottle by someone and thought ok, I’ll give it a go.

What can I say that hasn’t been said already. Foul taste, even the texture isn’t right anymore.

Whoever made the decision to change the mixture must now be put in charge of nothing more complex than fruit juice.

Why change to something inferior. I tried the 'new' kings ginger recently and what a disappointment. Overly citrus and sharp. Gone is the warming mellow richness of the original. Quite unpleasant to drink. Several of my guests said the same. I will not be buying again.

Sorry to say it but not anywhere near as good as the original version

Disaster of a rebrand

Very poor, citrus heavy, weaker version of the original. Not a viable substitute at all, better to look elsewhere.
