Proof66 Notes

The King's Ginger Liqueur was first produced in 1903 for King Edward VII, said to be drunk in his morning rides on his "horseless carriage." It is said to have been commissioned by the royal physician. Today, it is still produced by Berry Bros & Rudd as a sweetened and intense ginger liqueur.

I'm a little puzzled by the mediocre ratings... I think it's a bit better than that. Given that it styles itself an expensive, ginger liqueur I think one shouldn't get mad at shelling out $40 and finding sweet and ginger on the palate. Assuming that's the contract you signed, this has a nice floral complexity to go with a sweet and spicy that's not overpowering. The taste just begs for a little citrus... happily, the manufacturers refrained from putting that in allowing us to do that ourselves with cocktails. I see the BTI suggested Asian cocktails... maybe. I think a little vodka (or shochu would be even better), and a little citrus make a very, very nice drink.

I wouldn't toss $40 on a bottle of it again, but it does have a pleasant, powerful ginger impartation (drinking it neat, at least) and was an acceptable experience. If you like ginger and have a opportunity, give it a try. A little too syrupy for my liking. Go easy on it, though. Do not abuse it. You've been warned.
