KING Edward VII reigned from 1901 to 1910 and was a customer of Berry Bros. He was a thoroughly clubbable chap who enjoyed the high life as Prince of Wales in the late 1800s. By indulging in this favoured pursuit of riding the horseless carriage, the Royal Physician became concerned about the monarch’s health, exposed as he was to the elements. He commissioned, therefore, Berry Bros. to formulate a liqueur which would warm and revivify His Majesty during his morning rides; the result, a rich, golden nectar with a pronounced spicy ginger emphasis and delightfully crisp flavour.
Seductively golden in colour. The bouquet is instantly warming aroma of ginger, zesty lemon, sherbet and golden syrup. The palate shows an initial sweetness followed by bite of ginger and lemon tart. Deliciously satisfying and warming mouthfeel. The finish is lingering and extremely long.
