The Most Regal Gin You’ll Ever Drink
Victoria Distillers and the Fairmont Empress team up to create a spirit that's fit for a queen.
September 11, 2017
In our crowded craft spirits scene, it takes a little something special to get us excited, but this mash-up bottle between distilling legend Peter Hunt of Victoria Distillers and lodging legend the Fairmont Empress makes an impact right off the bat with its regal purple hue (all natural, courtesy of dried butterfly pea blossoms), which transforms to a soft pink with the addition of tonic (see below).
1.5 oz Campari
2 oz tonic water
1.5 oz Empress 1908 gin
Build over ice in a glass in the order listed above. Sip and repeat.
