Flavor Profile

Indulge in the authentic taste of your beloved snack in liquid form. This unique spirit starts with enticing umami and tangy aromas of nacho cheese, leading to rich corn-forward flavors reminiscent of the chip, and concluding with a gentle salty finish.

The birth of the Doritos spirit is a stroke of serendipity, as the best discoveries often are.

During Empirical's early experimentation phase, while fine-tuning still designs and conducting numerous botanical tests, a team member returned from lunch with a sandwich and a bag of Doritos. On a whim, the Doritos were tossed into the still. Expectations were modest, perhaps hoping for some subtle top notes or merely the essence of the tortilla flavor.

To everyone's surprise, as the R&D team sampled the concoction, laughter ensued. They were tasting Doritos!

Doritos encapsulate all the flavors our palates crave—umami richness, saltiness, a touch of sweet and sour tang, and a hint of bitterness—all encapsulated in a single bite. This discovery resonated with many chefs, who confessed to indulging in the guilty pleasure of Doritos. This sentiment was affirmed as beta versions of the spirit were shared with restaurant colleagues, eliciting the same laughter and delight experienced during its initial tasting.
