Victoria Distillers of British Columbia has released Empress 1908 Gin, an all-natural, indigo blue spirit. During distillation, an infusion of butterfly pea blossom creates a distinctive hue. With the addition of citrus or tonic, Empress 1908 is transformed from indigo blue to monarch purple and then rose petal pink. Victoria Distillers is well-known in British Columbia as the producer of the second best-selling premium gin behind Hendricks. The eight organic botanicals in Empress 1908 are: juniper, rose, coriander seed, grapefruit peel, ginger root, cinnamon bark and the Fairmont Empress tea blend.
