Wine & Spirits

Experience a new, bold taste through the use of molecular distilling from plants, fruit and yeast. Endless West discovered a one-of-a-kind distilling technique, analyzing the molecules that create the flavors and aromas needed to concoct the perfect whiskey. Each small batch is analyzed through smell and taste to determine the molecular components they wish to experience through the drink. Next, the molecules are gathered through natural resources. These ingredients are brought to the lab to be crafted into different iterations until perfected. Lastly, the product is bottled to be shared with the world.

 

Endless West uses environmentally conscious processes to reduce its carbon footprint. Compared to other traditional whiskey production, Endless West protects the resources needed to produce the spirit, requiring 94 percent less water and 92 percent less agricultural land while emitting 82 percent less CO2 emissions.

Sum of Its Parts: Discover the True Pulse of the City in Chicago’s Diverse Neighborhoods
