EMPIRICAL IS UNIVERSAL
Empirical is born in Copenhagen but its reach and mission knows no boundaries. And it’s now time for the next step in our evolution.
We’re moving our HQ to Brooklyn and our production facility in Copenhagen will cease to exist at the end of June 2023. This is a natural progression and one we always envisioned; establishing multiple production sites around the world.
Empirical is uncategorized, universal, and never bound by its location.
As Lars puts it:
“Now that we have trusted relationships and track records with partner distilleries around the world, we can transition to a new decentralized model where production is closer to local sources and markets. Our goal, ultimately, is to capture local terroir and create unique products in each market.”
As we close the Copenhagen distillery at the end of June, our DNA will always be attached to our birthplace and our presence in the Danish capital will not end. We will keep on sharing Empirical flavors, experimenting, and further developing our educational program at a different location in the city, where our guests will be able to enjoy drinks, tastings, masterclasses and restock their home bars.
NEW YORK CITY HERE WE COME
What else you may ask? Well, things will be shaking in NYC!
Empirical will open a new location in the heart of North Bushwick. What to expect there? Plenty of spirits will be poured by the amazing Iain Townsend Griffiths at the Tasting Room / Bar. And of course, we will make a bit of room for some R&D madness, keeping on writing a playbook that does not exist—one distillation, one spirit, and one flavor at a time.
