The King's Ginger Liqueur


Recommended Posts

Sometime around the turn of the last century, when King Edward got his first horseless carriage, his doctor worried about him tootling around the dank and drafty countryside. So he requested this warming drink from Berry Bros and Rudd. It's a ginger liqueur: 41% alcohol, and very strong. (No common brandy for Edward VII; it's good to be king.) I believe this is the only alcoholic drink specifically created for drinking while driving.

It's hard to find, but a friend brought me a bottle from England.
