Empress 1908 Gin
Handcrafted in small batch copper-pot stills, Empress 1908 Gin delights the senses with its balanced citrus-and-spice palette, brilliant colour, light floral fragrance and soft texture. In addition to the classic gin botanicals of juniper, coriander seed, and rose petal, we also added unique twists to the Empress 1908 recipe. Instead of traditional lemon, we use grapefruit peel for its aromatic and lively bright note. Ginger root imparts a unique peppery/citrus note, and cinnamon bark offers an unusually warm, spicy note. Our eighth and final botanical is perhaps the most unusual of all: exotic butterfly pea blossom. This blossom balances the traditional citrus notes of gin with a warm herbal earthiness, and imparts a deep indigo colour that changes to bright lavender, soft pink, or fuchsia depending on the mixer. Mixologists have found the extraordinary flavour, remarkable mixability, and dramatic visual properties of Empress 1908 offers bold new ways to create exquisite cocktails.
