Empirical is known for its inventive, unusual spirits. Perhaps none are more unusual than this collaboration with Doritos. Crafted using a vacuum distillation process, this surprisingly clear liquid claims to taste just like the snack food staple, with initial flavors of umami and nacho cheese giving way to the corn base and a salty finish. While Empirical includes sipping it neat in their recommendations, we find the nacho-tinged takes on the margarita and Bloody Mary far more plausibly palatable. Bottled at 42% ABV in a 750ml bottle, it will be available in January at select retailers, with online pre-orders open now.
