Introducing Empress 1908 Cucumber Lemon Gin

Empress 1908 Gin, the fastest-growing and top-ranked ultra-premium gin in the U.S., proudly unveils the U.S. launch of Empress 1908 Cucumber Lemon Gin. This premium, handcrafted gin is produced in small batches and distilled in copper pot stills by Victoria Distillers, one of Canada’s oldest artisan distilleries. The refreshing new expression is crafted with eight unique botanicals including juniper berries, lemon, jasmine, star anise, cucumber, and fresh lemon zest.

Inspired by traditional afternoon tea, Empress 1908 Cucumber Lemon Gin boasts lively citrus notes and bursts with extraordinary flavor. The fusion of vibrant lemon zest and crisp garden cucumber beautifully complements the juniper, with a subtle hint of cardamom spice and the delicate aroma of jasmine. Its refined flavors elevate the palate, offering a delicate and refreshing finish.
