Events: Empirical x Fruktstereo x Josephine Sondlo
We’re teaming up with Fruktstereo and Josephine Sondlo for a special takeover of Bio Rio. Join us at the cinema bar for unique cocktails featuring our spirits and Fruktstereo’s category defying fruit pét-nats.
Fruktstereo was started by former fine dining sommeliers Karl Sjöström and Mikael Nypelius in 2016. They produce all-natural ciders and fruit pet-nats in Malmö, Sweden using fruits from abandoned orchards or home gardens and ‘waste fruits’ that farmers can no longer sell. Everything they make is fermented with natural yeast with zero additives.
Josephine Sondlo is Sweden’s upcoming award-winning bartender. For every drink she makes, Sondlo draws inspiration from the flavor, sustainability, and sensory perception of taste.

Serves: Ayuuk & Ginger Ale
Our new core spirit Ayuuk is based on Pasilla Mixe, a special smoke-dried chili that grows in a cloud forest. For this serve, the chili’s pleasantly spicy, vegetal notes are balanced out with the zesty, bite of ginger.
Releases: The Plum, I Suppose
We set out to make a spirit based on plum kernel. Plum kernels lie within the pits of all plums. They have a rich fragrance, fruity top notes, and marzipan undertones. In both appearance and taste, they most closely resemble almonds. We get ours from the Stanley variety of plums, known for its plump, dark blue-skinned fruit with yellow flesh.
