Learn a Bit, Taste a Bit, Laugh a Bit by RobertMJThompson
We took a classic tour (just under and hour) and became acquainted with the process of making spirits (like being in the best chemistry class). I loved the space, large, views of the sea, comfortable seating if you wanted to linger over specialty drinks. There is plenty of parking and restaurants are nearby to walk to. Many of the spirits are displayed for purchase after your tasting.

Took my son who was visiting from out of town. We did the Empress tour and had such a fun time! The tasting was accompanied with interesting facts about each spirit. Our hosts were super personable as well. We finished the tasting with a cheese platter which was delicious! Worth the money spent!
The Makers of Empress 1908 Gin - Don't Miss This! by Kim D
If you like finding something new and completely different, this is a great place to visit. It is only 20 minutes away from Butchart Gardens and close to the Victoria Airport. My husband and I visited here on a Sunday afternoon. There was a summer concert taking place outside. After we listened for a while, we made our way into this wonderful modern distillery. We sat at the bar and tried two different flights of spirits made here: one was a vodka flight, the other was gin, especially with a taste of the Empress 1908 Gin that is the most wonderful color of blue/lavendar. It is very tasty! I usually don't drink gin, but this was far better than I imagined. It makes a refreshing gin and tonic with a lime twist and an even better chocolate martini made with this gin and their chocolate liqueur. We are so glad we stopped here. They also serve food and have a lovely outdoor patio as well as distillery tours.
