Ruled by ritual.

Arbutis distilleries empiric ginThe Spirit

The “Empiric” is a truly west-coast style gin using a unique array or herbs and botanicals found here. While possessing flavours from juniper and coriander, as with all gins, The Empiric, offers a unique deviation from the more common place ‘London dry’ style with robust citrus notes imparted from lemon verbena (vs traditional lemon and orange rinds). Anise-hyssop fennel, rosemary, lavender and hops also present.

On The Label

Cloaked in midnight black, ever present, seldom seen, the Empiric resides among the twisted cedars of temperate West Coast rain forests. Ruled by ritual – a bearer of natural magic and deeply shrouded secrets – the Empiric brings clarity to those who are truly worthy. Decades of knowledge and practice collide, exploding into a spirit that taste like no other, an ethereal blend of the finest West Coast herbs and botanicals.

    Wow! Such beautiful pcriutes! I haven’t been to the distillery either, but I had somehow imagined it in my mind as a much drier place. I like all the brown and green!
