Victoria Distillers Empress 1908 Gin 750ml
Inspired by the famous afternoon tea service at the Fairmont Empress Hotel, Empress 1908 Gin is made by Victoria Distillers in Canada. Botanicals include juniper, grapefruit peel, ginger, rose petal, Fairmont Empress tea and butterfly pea blossom. The striking indigo colour is a result of the infusion of the tea and butterfly pea flower - you'll find absolutely no artificial nasties in here. However, this does mean that over time the colour may begin to fade, so keep it out of sunlight. Serve with a splash of tonic, and watch the colour-changing fun unfold...
A floral bouquet bursts onto the palate, before fading into cinnamon and ginger spice. Piney juniper and bright grapefruit notes linger on the finish.
