Getting started with Empirical

We know - diving into the world of uncategorized spirits can be a bit daunting. Since you made it this far, it must be because you're a little curious. And curiosity is the first critical step.

Fear not - we put together a few tips on getting started on your Empirical journey.

Step 1 - start simple

We recommend sipping our spirits neat or over ice to unpack the flavor and then go from there as you decide how to pair them with other ingredients.

However, we've also put together a series of Simple Serves - great ways to get started with a single mixer and a garnish found in most local markets.

  • Symphony 6 and Tonic

    We call this the Symphonic: Symphony 6 and Tonic with garnish of your choice.

  • Ayuuk and Ginger Beer

    A riff on the Moscow Mule, and the more lime you add, the merrier.

  • Soka Cola

    All the ingredients are in the name. Because sometimes, the simpler it is, the more delicious it tastes

Step two - revisit the classics

Step two is to hack one of your favorites. We've used Empirical to hack - and in our humble opinion - add new experiences to the classics, creating a portfolio of Classics With A Twist. Simply, work backwards from a drink you love, and expand your flavor horizon by swapping in Empirical. It's a fun way to get going on adding your personal touches.

  • A Tom Collins with The Plum, I Suppose

    This twist on a Tom Collins mixes the citrus with the marzipan notes from The Plum, I Suppose for more depth and texture.

  • The Old Fashioned with Ayuuk

    Great complexity and punch in this booze-forward cocktail. The Pasilla Mixe Chili delivers a delicate undercurrent of chilies and flavor.

  • A Mojito with Soka

    Made from Sorghum from the midwest, in hindsight it's a no-brainer to make a special mojito from the Empirical Soka. The American Heartland right in your cocktail.

Step 3 - select which flavor to try first

Armed with recipes of your choice, and ready to expand your horizon, select the flavor below.

If you're not entirely sure what to pick, we recommend starting with Symphony 6 and simply try it with tonic. That's a great primer.
