U.S. premium gin brand Empress 1908 just launched its newest expression: Empress 1908 Cucumber Lemon Gin. Produced in small batches, this new gin is distilled in copper-pot stills by Victoria Distillers, one of Canada’s oldest artisan distilleries, the company states.

Empress 1908 Cucumber Lemon Gin is crafted with juniper berries, lemon, jasmine, staranise, cucumber and lemon zest, according to the distillery.

Utilizing Botanical Expertise

“We always strive to create balanced, high quality blends that inspire creativity and offer inviting flavors. Following the overwhelmingly positive reception of our Elderflower Rose Gin last year, we leveraged our Master Distillers’ extensive botanical expertise to introduce our next innovative flavor: Cucumber Lemon,” said Eric Dopkins, CEO and chairman of Milestone Brands, in a news release. “We are excited to see Empress Cucumber Lemon Gin support Empress Gin’s mission of creating the most distinctive cocktails.”

This new premium expression joins the Empress portfolio of other spirits, including Empress 1908 Indigo Gin and Empress 1908 Elderflower Rose Gin. With the addition of Empress 1908 Cucumber Lemon Gin, the Empress Portfolio expects to top 250,000 9L cases in North America this year, the distillery states.

Empress 1908 Cucumber Lemon Gin is 42.5% ABV and is available nationwide in select retailers for a suggested retail price of $39.99 for a 750-ml. bottle, according to the distillery.
