Get past the stunning blue and find a flavor memory of London Dry Gin.

Victoria Spirits was founded in 2008 as a boutique distiller of quality-crafted Spirits in Victoria, Canada. The business blossomed on Canada’s West Coast and caught the attention of The Marker Group who have a passion for investing in local businesses. So, they acquired Victoria Spirits in 2015 — renaming it Victoria Distillers, opening a visitor center, and expanding on the line-up of delicious adult beverages including Gins, Whiskies, Vodkas, and liqueurs.

Empress 1908 Indigo Gin is a bright, almost electric shade of blue. It doesn’t look like a Gin. Let’s be honest here… it looks like something the Romulans might drink in an episode of Star Trek — yes, it’s THAT blue. But this exotic Gin comes by its unique color naturally through a combination of special botanical infusions inspired by the tea service at the Fairmont Empress Hotel’s Tea Room. In addition to the requisite juniper you’ll fine coriander seed, cinnamon, ginger, and grapefruit zest. But you’ll also find rose petals, the signature Fairmont Empress Blend Tea, and butterfly pea blossoms that deliver the amazing color. And it brings some interesting color-changing effects to all of your favorite Gin cocktails.

Smartass corner:
The Empress Hotel opened up directly on Victoria’s inner harbor in 1908. It is the most prominent and famous building on the island.

Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.

Ratings & Reviews
By itself it’s not the best sipping gin, but as a base of cocktails it’s delicious and the color is extremely entertaining. Definitely recommend
A tale of two gins. As a sipper, it isn’t spectacular, but it isn’t offensive. You enter a sort of flavor vacuum until the floral juniper finish. Not very exciting but also very smooth. As a mixer, this can’t be beat for any citrusy cocktail. It supports and softens the citrus so well for some of the smoothest cocktails I’ve ever made.
This is easily one of the most vile gins I've had. It comes out flat with some new flavors that don't stand up. The color change is way too gimmicky, but sexiness sells.
This may be my all-time favorite gin and I have sampled over 125. What a pleasant surprise.
