About the Product
Empress 1908 Gin (SRP: $39.99, 42.5% ABV)
Handcrafted in small batch copper-pot stills, Empress 1908 Gin is made by Victoria Distillers and inspired by the legendary Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia. On top of traditional botanicals, we add a signature blend of black tea served at the Empress Hotel and butterfly pea blossom, an exotic herb that balances the traditional citrus notes of gin with a warm herbal earthiness, and gives the gin its natural indigo color. Empress 1908’s 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 was named “Best Canadian Classic” at the “2018 World Gin Awards” and awarded the gold medal at the “2017 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition” along with many other earned distinctions and awards
