The King's Ginger 50cl is a high-ranking spirit created from the careful maceration of Ginger roots, animated by a judicious addition of citrus in the form of lemon oil how unexpected stimulation of flavor.
This liqueur was created in the year 1903 by the British company Berry Bros & Rudd for the King Edward VII of England by medical prescription. The eldest son of Queen Victoria, was during his stage as heir to the throne a great fan of the first cars that rolled through the streets of London. As then the vehicles did not usually have isolation or heating, Eduardo often suffered from constipation. The Palace doctors prescribed Ginger infusions, which the Prince hated. For that reason the company of Distillates was commissioned the creation of a liquor from this root, so that Eduardo-then already crowned king-could admit ginger without question.
