“Following in the footsteps of our celebrated Empress 1908 Indigo Gin, Empress 1908’s Elderflower Rose expression pays homage to our home city of Victoria, British Columbia. Lovingly referred to as the ‘City of Gardens’, Victoria’s flowers bloom nearly year-round, offering plenty of inspiration for our distillers. Empress Elderflower Rose Gin is handcrafted in copper pot stills and features a bright floral bouquet of nine unique premium botanicals. Distinguished by its surprisingly understated floral palate complemented by citrus and spice notes and a hint of sweetness, Empress Elderflower Rose Gin brings a taste of our home to your next cocktail creation. Empress Elderflower Rose Gin marries nine vibrant botanical elements to create its one-of-a-kind flavour palate. In addition to juniper berries, you will taste the gentle sweetness of elderflower, a bright burst of orange and a touch of floral rose and lavender. The gin’s colour is all-natural, from the addition of red rose petals and black carrot.
