Brian,
Ok, honestly I've only made one cocktail with this gin - the Q1908 which you can find on the Empress 1908 website. But wow, that is one great cocktail! I had to order another bottle immediately.

Jackson,
Goes down like water and the color change trick is fun too. Don’t think it’s interesting enough to drink straight, but makes a nice g&t. Most impressive part is how drinkable it is. Not special, but probably a crowd pleaser

Sir,
Huge G&T fan in the summer. Usually drink BeefEater. This stuff is not only festive summer color but makes a very good Gin & Tonic. Staple in my bar now.

A fun bottle of Gin for some Instagramable moments. Love making a Gin Fizz in a coupe glass.
 
Justin
Justin,
Smooth, not overly botanical, balanced
 
Allen
Allen,
Very pretty in the right drinks. It is maybe a little too floral for everything but works nicely with tonic, citrus or vermouth etc. Totally drinkable on its own but I prefer to mix with gins generally.

Jon,
Nope. Just nope. Had high hopes for this one based on reviews but on both first and second tries it was clear this was strictly a mixer. Hard sell at the price point as I look for things that are dinkable on their own without the need to mixed. Hit me in the face right off the bat with booze and some weird bitterness and I never really got any actual flavor from it. Glad others like it but just not my jam at all.

One of my favorite guns. I love the bouquet.
 
Rex
Rex,
Unbelievable flavor mixes well with citrus tonics or other mixers. Not to mention the unbelievable color. Great for celebrating. Everyone always wants to know what I am drinking. The only trouble is after all the tastes my drinks go 3x as fast.
 
Anne
Anne,
I love this gin. Yes the color is a bit of a novelty, but it's true you eat with your eyes! This is my go to gin and tonic gin for now, makes a good negroni as well.
 
Dipal
Dipal,
Great tasting gin with a really fun color. Mixes well and can make some amazing drinks with it.
 
Brian
Brian,
Pleasant but strongly piney. Good to sip, and the color changing trick makes it fun to keep around.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
It’s cool to pour and with a grapefruit wedge, has about the best citrus burst I’ve ever had. A unique experience - love it!

guest,
Has a piny taste that’s not overbearing with floral overtones sitting on top that compliment it nicely. Great in cocktails. The color changing with different liquors is also fun to watch. My new favorite gin!

Perfect gin for a fizzy fit for Aerosmith

Nicholas,
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
 
Paul
Paul,
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.
 
Brett
Brett,
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.
