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.

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.

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.

Leaves a really bad taste in the mouth and it's just bad
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

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.
