Do you recall the scent of smoked fish that your grandfather served you? What about those birthday cakes your mother made, and how they somehow got more dense and luscious after a night in the fridge? Or your first bite of a citrus-like ant? These sense memories moved us just as much in the past as they do now.
When Lars Williams and Mark Emil Hermansen set off in creating Empirical in 2017, they were guided by a child-like curiosity about how the world works. This perspective blended with their knack for tinkering, exploration, and continual refinement. The result? A powerful blend that pushes Empirical to be focused on creating the best flavors possible.
Many of us have spent a significant amount of blood and sweat working in some of the world’s best kitchens with the hope of pushing the boundaries of how we experience food. The outcome is something that’s democratic and shareable and driven by the journey of creating unique and unexpected flavors.
If it wasn’t clear, Empirical is a flavor company.
