The Lost
Laboratory

Beyond setting high standards for sustainability in our current production process, we are actively exploring ways to push industry standards. The Lost Laboratory is being built to do just this. While being respectful to the great depths of wisdom and tradition of the past, we are looking to the future and seeking ways to build further sustainability through constant experimentation.

As The Lost Laboratory and its curiosities develop, there will be questions, doubts, breakthroughs, failures and great (and great-tasting) successes.

We look forward to sharing our journey.

Join the Journey.
Live Curiously.
