MEET THE ADVENTURING PARTY
Quest’s End Whiskey is the inaugural mission of Find Familiar Spirits, the world’s first spirits company dedicated to providing fandoms with high-end curated potables to call their own.
The brainchild of celebrity actor/gaming entrepreneur Matthew Lillard, screenwriter Justin Ware, and Blue Run Spirits co-founder Tim Sparapani, Find Familiar Spirits combines the storytelling acumen and influence of Hollywood with award-winning spirits craftsmanship and the muscle of Chicago marketing. For Quest’s End, they were lucky enough to add unassailable fantasy cred and world-creating genius in the form of Art Director/Illustrator Tyler Jacobson and Content Director/Writer Kate Welch.
The founders named the company Find Familiar Spirits as a nod to the famous spell, but also to honor that magical moment in your life when you find a kindred soul – an homage to both meanings of the word. The long-time friends came together with one goal: to craft spirits with the same attention to detail, commitment to authenticity, and feeling of kinship you get inside any dedicated and beloved subculture.
