The King's Ginger Liqueur - Gift Pack
About the BrandThe King's Ginger liqueur presented in a branded gift box together with a hip flask. 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 for an unexpectedly fresh lift. The King's Ginger is the emphatically ginger liqueur that was specifically formulated by Berry Brothers in 1903 for King Edward VII. Rich and zesty, it was created to stimulate and revivify His majesty during morning rides in his new horseless carriage and has been appreciated by bon viveurs, sporting gentlemen and high-spirited ladies ever since.
|Brand||The King's Ginger|
Nose: The ginger aromas evolve, starting from ginger ale at first whiff, turning into ginger beer and then intense crystalised ginger. There's a hint of lemon sherbet in the background,too.
Palate: Sticky in texture with the ginger growing in intensity and the lemon becoming more curd-like in nature.
Finish: The fiery spice slowly dissipates, leaving a mouthcoating lemon sweetness.
Comment: A useful liqueur to have in the cabinet. It's very warming at room temperature – perfect for taking in a hip flask on a winter walk. Chill and add to Champagne or sparkling wine and you have a spicy version of a classic Kir.
