Product description

Extra. Sensory. Perfection. More than any other gin in the world, Empress 1908 Gin appeals to one’s sense of creative delight through its balanced citrus and spice palette, brilliant colour, light floral fragrance and soft texture. Distilled in small batch copper-pot stills, Empress 1908 is created by Victoria Distillers and inspired by the legendary Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia. It is handcrafted using eight signature botanicals, including a subtle juniper varietal, a bespoke blend of tea made especially for the Empress Hotel, grapefruit peel, rose petal for floral notes, Indian coriander seed, aromatic ginger root, and spicy cinnamon bark. The eighth botanical, exotic butterfly pea blossom, was discovered in another tea blend served at the Empress Hotel. These blossoms balance the traditional citrus notes of gin with a warm herbal earthiness, and imbue the gin with a deep indigo colour that changes to bright lavender, soft pink, or fuchsia 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. Let your inner brilliance flow.

    This is the best gin I’ve had since Hendricks. The price is incredible and I just found my new favorite mid afternoon cocktail.
