    Released in the US in the summer of 2017, Empress 1908 Indigo Gin achieves its indigo blue color with the infusion of butterfly pea blossom.

In addition to the butterfly pea blossom and requisite juniper, the gin uses blended tea from Victoria's own Fairmont Empress Hotel. Other botanicals used are grapefruit peel, coriander seed, rose petal, ginger root, and cinnamon bark. All botanicals are organic and the spirit base is non-GMO corn. (SRP $39.99)
