HomeOur Story | Flying Embers

In the Fall of 2016, Fermented Sciences was founded in Ojai, California by a team of passionate entrepreneurs driven to disrupt the alcohol beverage industry through the creation of a revolutionary platform of great tasting botanical brews with functional benefits. 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 home and fermentation lab. For three relentless days our community banded together to fight the inferno. On the third night, we stood on the precipice of disaster as a wall of fire tore through the canyon towards us. As the flames towered above and swirling embers filled the sky, we faced the complete destruction of our dream and potentially our lives. When fortune shined upon us that night and 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.

Today, we embody that vision in every beverage we create at our brewery in Ventura, CA. Rooted in ancient traditions, brewed with botanical adaptogens, and enlivened with innovative fermentation techniques we bring you the best-tasting sessionable alcohol beverages in the world.
