Empirical Can 01 (Oolong Tea)
Empirical, from two Noma alums, creates drinks that make use of uncommon ingredients like beet molasses, toasted birch and young pine cones. The distillery describes itself as a “flavor company,” making novel alcoholic magic by macerating fruit, herbs, and botanicals into booze outside traditional categories such as gin, rum, or vodka. Just don't call them cocktails. Can 01, This lightly carbonated canned quaff is made from a base of vacuum distilled beet molasses and Belgian saison yeast spirit with the additions of oolong tea, green gooseberry, toasted birch shavings, douglass fir needles and pomelo zest. 10% ABV.
