Our Mission

Flying Embers’ mission is to disrupt the unhealthy alcohol paradigm. We are a conscious brand that's dedicated to doing its part in building a better world.

We stand by innovation and crafting libations that have better ingredients for you that actually matter.


Brewed With Gratitude

In the Fall of 2016, Fermented Sciences Inc. was founded in Ojai, California by a team of passionate entrepreneurs who were determined to disrupt the unhealthy alcohol paradigm. In a hundred-year-old stone wine cellar, we built a laboratory and began to dive deep into the ancient alchemy of fermentation.

One year later, a massive wildfire threatened our fermentation lab. As the flames towered above and swirling embers filled the sky, we faced the complete destruction of our dream and potentially our lives. When the winds turned, we were left with a deep appreciation for the power of nature and a profound sense of gratitude for each other and life itself.

Out of this transformational experience came the inspiration for the Flying Embers name, and our renewed commitment to create functional beverages that illuminate and celebrate the experience of life. Flying Embers is committed to donating a portion of its revenue to firefighters and first responder charitable organizations out of gratitude for their service.
