We believe in the creative capacity of science.

At Endless West, we are a small, independent team of scientists, sommeliers, writers, chefs, and grad school dropouts creating the next generation of spirits.

 

Our mission? To boldly create what no one has created before: a world forged with new frontiers and beverages.

Our Values

Authenticity

We’re transparent about who we are, what we make, and what makes us different. Our work builds off the past with an eye on the future.

Curiosity

We are inquisitive by nature and happiest when learning. We’re unafraid to be wrong, but eager to get things right.

Exploration

Where others see boundaries, we seek frontiers. We are optimists inspired by the power of science to make change.

 

Our Story

In 2015, Mardonn came across a Napa Valley Chardonnay that changed the way he thought about fine wines and spirits forever. This particular vintage, due to its age and pedigree, had become too valuable to open. As a wine enthusiast, Mardonn began to wonder what good a bottle serves if it can’t be tasted. As a scientist, he asked himself: was it possible to create the same renowned wine without conventional production methods?

Those questions were the genesis of Endless West. Mardonn joined forces with Alec, a fellow scientist and renegade spirit, and Josh, a sommelier with a knack for unconventional thinking. 

What began as an obsession with the molecular components of wine turned into an exploration of spirits, too. Our first challenge was to create a high-quality spirit inspired by whiskey, using a fraction of the usual resources: a smooth, charismatic spirit  that sips like it’s been stored away for years, despite having never seen the inside of a barrel.

Our journey begins with spirits, but when it comes to opportunities for exploration in food and drink, the horizon is endless.
