Empress 1908 Gin
Empress 1908 Gin delights the senses with its balanced citrus-and-spice palette, brilliant color, light floral fragrance and soft texture. Handcrafted in small batch copper-pot stills, Empress 1908 uses eight signature botanicals, including juniper, grapefruit peel, rose petal, coriander, ginger, cinnamon, and a bespoke blend of tea. The eighth botanical is the exotic butterfly pea blossom, which balances the traditional citrus notes of gin with a warm herbal earthiness, and creates a deep, natural indigo that changes color 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.
Empress 1908 Gin is a remarkable spirit that could have only been created in the city of Victoria, on beautiful Vancouver Island, in Canada’s British Columbia, where rugged mountains meet the beautiful Pacific Coast. Handcrafted in small batch copper-pot stills, Empress 1908 Gin is the result of a collaboration between the distillery’s President and Master Distiller Peter Hunt and Victoria’s iconic Empress Hotel. The company set out to create an extraordinary cocktail experience that would delight the senses, using eight carefully selected botanicals. The company's inspiration and ingredients are what make Empress 1908 an exceptional gin.
