AGM Reception

Special for This Year AGM

We will be presenting two cocktails blended with the King's Ginger

at the AGM this year.


The King's Ginger Liqueur became famous in the reign of King Edward VII when, at the request of the King's doctor, it was produced as a warming drink for His Majesty to take after winter morning rides in his new horseless carriage. The distinctive smooth ginger flavour is perfectly balanced by a pleasingly clean, dry finish. 


This year we are happy to have our BCCT member, Long Life Trading Co., Ltd. presenting The King's Ginger​. Come to join our AGM and enjoy the golden taste of their King's Ginger Cocktails!

A Revitalising And Warming Spirit


First crafted by Berry Bros. & Rudd for King Edward VII in 1903, The King's Ginger is golden in colour and delightfully robust in flavour. A revitalising and warming spirit that brings people together.


The King's Ginger is wonderfully uplifting when enjoyed on its own and comes to life in many delicious cocktails.

It's the perfect foundation for any occasion.


Tasting Note


  • Colour: Hay and straw, rich golden syrup.
  • Nose: It is unmistakably Ginger – a cloud of fresh natural ginger with a faint aura of zesty lemon swiftly entices the first sip.
  • Palate: The initial flow of ginger syrup sweetness is gently interrupted by the tingle of fresh ginger and a subtle and gentle uplift of lemon citrus. Warm, fulfilling and of great length.
  • ABV: 29.9%
