Product description

Empress 1908 Gin delights the senses with its balanced citrus-and-spice palette, brilliant colour, light floral fragrance and soft texture. Handcrafted in small batch copper-pot stills, Empress 1908 is a collaboration between Victoria Distillers and the legendary Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia. It uses eight signature botanicals, including juniper, grapefruit peel, rose petal, coriander, ginger, cinnamon, and a bespoke blend of tea made especially for the Empress Hotel. The eighth botanical, exotic butterfly pea blossom, was discovered in another tea served at the Empress Hotel. These blossoms balance the traditional citrus notes of gin with a warm herbal earthiness, and create a deep, natural indigo that changes colour depending on the mixer. The combination of exquisite taste, delicate aroma, soft texture, and remarkable presentation provide the perfect base for a new aesthetic of cocktail creation and enjoyment.

    THIS IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE GIN ON THE MARKET TODAY! The flavor profile is insane, but that combined with the color… makes this unbeatable! It makes the most delicious and beautiful drinks you’ve ever had. Must try!

    This is my go-to gift for house-warming, thank you gifts, etc. It's always a people pleaser, looks amazing on a home bar set up and makes the most beautiful and delicious cocktails - even a simple gin & tonic has a wow factor with Empress!

    I don't get it. It's a subpar gin that is purple. I mean, really? Go get the butterfly pea flower extract and put it in a good bottle of gin. Voila. Same thing.
