Empress 1908 Elderflower Rose Gin

Empress 1908 Gin has unveiled Empress 1908 Elderflower Rose Gin. The gin is handcrafted and distilled in copper-pot stills by Victoria Distillers, one of Canada’s oldest, small-batch spirits companies. 

Empress Elderflower Rose Gin is a blend of nine botanicals that create a delicate spirit with a an all-natural rose hue. Botanicals used include juniper berries, elderflower, orange peel, red rose petals, and black carrot. Roses are a traditional gin botanical with floral notes and a delicate aroma, while the black carrot adds a touch of sweetness and maintains the spirit’s vibrant ruby color.

The gin delivers a rich aroma and an understated floral palate. Additionally, it offers plenty of citrus and spice notes alongside a hint of sweetness.

“We’re excited to take inspiration from our distillery’s home in the ‘City of Gardens’ as well as deep insights into consumer trends using elderflower and rose to create a world-class gin.” said Milestone Brands CEO and Chairman Eric Dopkins. “Our master distiller has carefully balanced an innovative blend of botanicals specifically to make incredible cocktails.” 

The brand recommends enjoying the Elderflower Rose Gin in its signature Blossom & Tonic cocktail, served with premium tonic water and garnished with a fresh orange slice, which compliments the orange peel in the gin.

Bottled at 42.5% ABV, Empress 1908 Elderflower Rose Gin is available nationwide for the $39.99 per 750ml bottle. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
