May 8, 2019 | Endless West x WSJ at Westlight

On May 8th, The William Vale came together with The Wall Street Journal and San Francisco spirit startup, Endless West, to celebrate WSJ's Future of Everything Festival and Endless West's molecular whiskey, Glyph.

The WSJ was the first to taste and report on the revolutionary whiskey, which is entirely un-aged and has never been in a barrel. Instead, it’s made in Endless West‘s San Francisco laboratory. The WSJ featured Endless West on the cover of its FOE Magazine and subsequently invited the company to be a featured brand at the FOE Festival this month.

It was a no brainer for the cocktail masters at Westlight to partner with Endless West to create beautiful, bespoke Glyph cocktails specifically for the event atop the hotel.

Guests, who ranged from WSJ Plus members, The William Vale hotel guests, and local artists, journalists, and friends, sipped the cocktails from beakers as the sun set on a clear, gorgeous evening.
