Empress 1908 Gin Tasting

Released to the US in the summer of 2017, this gin achieves its indigo blue color with the infusion of butterfly pea blossom. The pH of this blossom is such that the addition of citrus or tonic will change the color of the gin from indigo blue to a light pink. In addition to the butterfly pea blossom and requisite juniper, the gin uses Victoria's own Fairmont Empress Hotel's blended tea. Other botanicals used are grapefruit peel, coriander seed, rose petal, ginger root, and cinnamon bark. All botanicals are organic and the spirit base is non-GMO corn
