Empirical Can 03
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 03 combines carob, fig leaf, lemon myrtle, andaliman pepper, coffee chaff, lemongrass, golden Yunnan tea and kombucha mother to create a vibrant, irresistible and impressively balanced, carbonated ready to drink quaff.
