Where do Empress 1908 Gin’s all-natural hues come from? 

Empress 1908 Indigo Gin’s unique colour is all-natural. It comes from the infusion of butterfly pea blossoms post-distillation. The addition of this flower provides Empress 1908 with a warm, herbal earthiness, soft texture, and stunning blue hue. Learn more about our botanical recipe here.

Our Empress 1908 Elderflower Rose Gin’s unique ruby colour is also all-natural! To achieve its stunning ruby hue, we use a unique combination of red rose petals and black carrots. Roses are a traditional gin botanical, and these add a beautiful floral note and a delicate aroma. The black carrot enhances and helps maintain that rich, ruby colour while providing a hint of sweetness. Learn more about our botanical recipe here.

Will the colour of my Empress 1908 fade over time? 

Yes. The distinct flavour and colour of Empress 1908 Gin comes from the infusion of natural botanicals. No artificial colours or stabilizers are used in its creation — so while the flavour will last forever, its unique hue will not. Fading of the natural colour is accelerated by exposure to sunlight. We recommend that you experience each bottle within a year of purchase and store in a cool, dark place. A gin this beautiful is meant to be enjoyed at its best.

Is Empress 1908 Gin gluten free?

Yes, Empress 1908 Gin is all-natural and gluten-free. Our gin is distilled from a premium corn-based spirit.
