Endless West is a beverage technology startup using science to create its own blend of wines and spirits. Its first product, Glyph, is the first whiskey ever to be crafted note by note, using molecules (or, flavor and aroma notes) extracted in their purest form from more efficient sources in nature.
Unlike conventional whiskeys, Glyph is made without aging or barreling — which means significantly less wood, water and land is used in its production process. Founded in 2015 by scientists Alec Lee and Mardonn Chua, and sommelier, Josh Decolongon, the company is headquartered in San Francisco
Mardonn Chua, a Vancouver native, is Co-Founder and CTO of Endless West. A biotechnology graduate from the University of British Columbia, he has experience in stem cells, chemistry and food.
