For those of us who prefer a spiced gin rather than fruity this flavour should be your first choice. Kingdom’s spiced gin, award winning and navy strength is best enjoyed over ice or mixed with cranberry juice. Kingdom’s Ginger Spiced creates a drink that is subtle and refreshing and is so easy to drink we recommend you enjoy our spiced gin on its own over ice to really experience the flavours. There’s a good reason it’s been the most award-winning gin in the Kingdom Recommends range and that’s because of the combination of flavour, strength and smoothness. Traditionally spiced gin is served during the colder months but adding cranberry juice and serving in a tall glass, on a bed of ice, means this spiced gin is as much at home in the sunshine as it is in front of the fire on a cold winter night. Add a bottle of this spiced gin to your basket and drink Kingdom’s spiced gin any way you enjoy it most, with friends, with ice, with cranberry juice, but most of all with pleasure.
Our Ginger Spiced Gin is the perfect drink for a cold winters’ day. Yes, I know you think gin is a summer drink, with tonic over ice in the sunshine, but this gin will change your mind. This is our navy strength spiced ginger gin with an ABV of 57.3%! Wow, that’s strong and you’re right it is but like all of our drinks it’s still very, very smooth, so smooth you can sip it over ice if you prefer your drinks that way. We created our Ginger Spiced Gin with the aromas of winter in mind, we added ginger for warmth and spice and as you take a sip you can really taste the spice. If you want to put a mixer together with this gin we recommend you add a juice rather than a tonic, especially cranberry juice, serve as a long drink over ice in a tall glass and you have the perfect accompaniment to both enhance the ginger and create a refreshing drink. If you’re not a lover of cranberry, try apple, especially warmed, mango, pear or orange, the list is endless and you can mix and match depending on the day.
We’re proud to say this gin won a Masters Medal in the Global Spirits Masters competition in 2021. That’s the highest accolade they give, it means it’s one of the best of the best, and in our first year in business we were delighted to see that our ginger gin was acknowledged that way. When you taste it you will see what all the fuss is about, it really is a tasty, spicy ginger gin made to be enjoyed during those cold winter months and as our label says – guaranteed to warm your cockles. This product takes time to produce, we add the spice to the gin as it’s distilling which gives it a subtle flavour and we don’t rush the process.
We are a small batch spirits company, we don’t normally create more than 250 bottles each time we produce, that means we can maintain quality and consistency, making sure the flavour in our ginger gin is exactly as it ought to be and how we know you will enjoy it time after time. Ginger Spiced Gin makes the most amazing cocktails, two of our favourites are the Yebo, mix 20ml ginger gin with 20ml Aperol and 20ml Dry Vermouth, serve over ice in a tumbler with a twist of orange, and the Spice Snapper, 40ml ginger gin, 100ml tomato juice, 10ml fresh lemon juice and Johannesburg sauce, sprinkle with salt and pepper and garnish with rosemary. You’ll find both these recipes in our cocktail section on the website and we regularly add new ones to our social media and this page.

In May, 2000 an 18 year old, South African boy arrived in London, England. He was here to further his education, to study politics and history, so that he could better his life, pursue a career in government and support his family at home.
When he arrived his visit did not go to plan, the friends he thought he had to stay with could not be found and instead of being met by familiar faces, he found himself alone in an unknown city, with little money and no where to go. The money he had, had been borrowed from a family friend, he didn’t want to use it, waste it as he knew it needed to be repaid, so after a 13 hour flight, he got his bags and walked the streets of London.
3 weeks passed by, he phoned his mum, crying, he told her he was sorry, but he couldn’t go on, England was not the place he had heard it was, he was tired, the streets were lonely, he was lonely and he didn’t know where he belonged or what he could do, it was a dark time. His mum was worried, there were no mobile phones and she had no way of contacting him, it was 4 weeks before she heard from him again and this is what had happened during that time…..
After he ended the phone call a man approached the boy and asked him if he was ok, it was that moment of kindness that lasted for ever. After talking together, the boy explained he had nothing and all he wanted to do was provide and support his family. They spoke at length about the world and opportunity within it, then the man offered him a life line. He gave him the opportunity of work, he gave him a chance, a job and reminded him to believe in himself.
20 years on and a lot has changed, but the story of one mans belief in another shows how people continue to have faith in one another’s dream.
