King's Ginger in Zürich?

Looking for somewhere in Züri where I can buy King's Ginger (the spirit/liquor).

Any suggestions?

BTW - If you don't know what I'm talking about then you are missing out - it's perfect for cold December evenings!

Thanks

Haven't seen it, but you can buy Domaine de Canton, a brandy (I think) with a strong ginger flavor. Love it.

Re: King's Ginger in Zürich?

In Britain we have "Stone's Ginger Wine" maybe you will find that here?

Re: King's Ginger in Zürich?

Ullrich is definitely a good bet. They have it on their web - http://www.ullrich.ch/shop/spirituos...D_NR_Art=22413

Re: King's Ginger in Zürich?

I did buy a bottle last year but I can't remember where I got it from. It didn't last very long.

Re: King's Ginger in Zürich?

That sounds good. Cue puzzled faces in Ullrichs as they have a run on King's Ginger.

Re: King's Ginger in Zürich?

Not to forget that Ginger Wine is the other key ingredient of a Whisky Mac.

Yeah, but Crabbies is only about 15% A whisky mac with a 41% mixer sounds better. Hic
