Empress 1908 Gin | 2020

An Immersive Cocktail Experience with a Twist

An award-winning spirit that needs no introduction, the iconic Empress 1908 Gin embraced the opportunity to take distribution international. Produced by one of the oldest small-batch distilleries in Canada, Victoria Distillers in Sidney, B.C., this homegrown product needed a larger-than-life website to promote growth and represent the Empress 1908 brand around the world.

Cocktail culture, made colourfully bold.

Marketing directly to Empress 1908 Gin’s target demographic, we created a highly Instagrammable aesthetic. 3D animation brings in colour, texture, and movement while rich visuals highlight the product’s all-natural botanicals and distinct indigo hue. And while the technology making this design possible is complex, the user experience is beautifully simple, functional, and intuitive.

  • “Our new website is super visually engaging and tells the Empress 1908 story well—it’s exactly what we had asked for. Thanks for ensuring that it was creative and unique.”
