Over the last decade, Victoria Gin has developed a cult following. In the Spring of 2016, Vic Gin is reborn — the same complex spirit, loved the country over, repackaged in a new bottle with a fresh, contemporary design. Canada’s first premium gin is new again!

The relaunch is accompanied by a new website that features classic and innovative recipes and techniques to help gin lovers make better drinks.  Let this cocktail spirit light up your cocktail tool kit and your imagination.  V+ your inspiration.

Tasting Notes:
Balances the characteristic evergreen flavour of juniper with notes of citrus, floral and spice. An intensely flavoured spirit that is as full-bodied and as complex as a fine single-malt whisky.

Oaken Gin

We’ve taken our flagship Victoria Gin and allowed it to mature gracefully in oak until it is amber in colour and beautifully smooth.

Tasting Notes: Softened vanilla notes from the oak, a full and buttery caramel sweetness.

Empress Gin

Our distillers worked with the mixologists of the new “Q at the Empress” bar to create a unique gin that is perfect for a G&T.

The butterfly pea flower gives the spirit its vibrant colour, and mixed with tonic or citrus changes from deep indigo to soft pink.

Tasting Notes: More juniper than our Victoria Gin, with robust citrus notes come from grapefruit peel. We also use rose, ginger, coriander, cinnamon and Fairmont Empress Blend Tea.

Left Coast Hemp Vodka

Distilled with the finest Canadian-grown organic hemp seed. The rich silky texture is elicited by the smooth oils of the hemp hearts.

Tasting Notes: Hazelnut and a hint of spice with a long, clean finish.

ss-1Sidney Spiced

This aromatic spirit (we will call it rum next year!) is distilled from molasses and Level Ground Trading’s fair trade organic cane sugar. The addition of carefully selected organic vanilla beans, orange peel, ginger root, star anise seed and orris root give this classic spirit further warmth and complexity.

Find it in the Victoria Distillers tasting room only.

choc-bottleChocolate Liqueur

Fair trade cacao nibs and husks, grown at Costa Esmeraldas Farm in Ecuador and refined by Sirene Chocolate Makers in Victoria BC, are macerated in a pure cane spirit. A touch of sweetness is added to bring out the flavour of the organic chocolate. The flavours and aromas of this lovely liqueur are reminiscent of a fine dark chocolate bar.

This product is only sold through the Victoria Distillers tasting room.
