Empirical is a flavor company.

Taking a flavor-first approach means we find great ingredients and turn them into delicious experiences.


Japan has always held a special place at Empirical. We asked five Master Bartenders to share their thoughts on our spirits and showcase their interpretation through unique cocktails. Watch as Kazunori Shizuya of Shinjuku Whisky Salon, Tokyo, prepares his Smoked Plum Sour.
