Meet Alkemista. And say hello to custom-crafted spirits.
Alkemista is all-in-one spirits infusion vessel that enables anyone to craft and serve fresh, custom infused cocktails at home or in a bar — using fresh fruit, spices, herbs and botanicals.
We began with a quest to craft a better cocktail and discovered that fresh spirits infusions were the key to creating remarkable cocktails and bitters. So we set out to design a bar tool that would simplify the process of spirits infusions. By marrying the timeless design of the classic spirits bottle with the beautiful simplicity of Japanese teapots, Alkemista makes the art of infusion easy.
TIMELESS DESIGN. LAB-GRADE QUALITY. REMARKABLE INFUSED SPIRITS.
The Alkemista infusion vessel combines the timeless design of a classic spirits bottle with the simple technology of fine Japanese teapots - making it easy to create custom spirits at home or in a bar.
Alkemista's lab-grade borosilicate glass bottle was designed to look and feel like a traditional spirits bottle and is large enough to hold a full 750ml of spirits, plus plenty of infusion ingredients. The elegant design is highly-durable and feels as good in the hand as it looks on the counter or back bar.
The removable ultra-fine infusion filter allows you to seamlessly infuse, pour, serve and store your custom creation without the need for separate filters, funnels or bottles. It was cleverly designed to introduce the delicate flavors and aromas of fresh fruits, spices, and botanicals into your spirit while preventing the unwanted particles and bitter elements from escaping into the liquid. The result: remarkable infused spirits.
SIMPLE USER EXPERIENCE
STEP 1. Place ingredients like fruits, spices, roots or botanicals into Alkemista’s stainless steel infusion filter, and then add a base alcohol like whiskey, gin, vodka or tequila.
STEP 2. Allow flavors and aromas to mingle with the alcohol (for a few hours, days or weeks, depending on your preference).
STEP 3. Pour and serve the infused spirit directly from the Alkemista, or mix with other elements to create fresh, premium cocktails.
Alkemista at a glance.
ELEGANT AND EASY. No need for separate (and clumsy) infusion jars, funnels or filters. Alkemista’s simple “all-in-one” design features an integrated, infusion filter that gently steeps your spirits like fine tea—and once removed, transforms the bottle into an elegant serving vessel.
ENDURING CRAFTSMANSHIP. The Alkemista infusion vessel is made of high-quality borosilicate glass and features a leak-proof stainless steel bottom lid and food-grade silicone stopper. The infusion filter is forged from stainless steel and is large enough to hold full pieces of fruit and up to 200ml of infusion ingredients.
FRESH INGREDIENTS. NO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS. Virtually all flavored whiskeys and vodkas are made with added sugar and fake flavors concocted in a lab—not grown in a garden. Alkemista lets you craft superior-tasting spirits with fresh ingredients that are free of artificial ingredients, unwanted dyes, chemicals or added sugar.
Just add fresh fruits, spices, herbs or botanicals to Alkemista’s ultra-fine infusion filter, allow the flavors and aromas to mingle into your favorite spirit, then serve directly from the bottle.
Modern mixology made simple.
Alkemista is designed to simplify the spirits infusion process for professional and amateur drink-makers everywhere. The result is a perfectly balanced craft spirit that is ready to sip or mix into your cocktail creations.
ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES. With Alkemista, anyone can become a DIY mixologist – creating infused spirits, cocktails, tinctures, and bitters with ingredients like fresh fruits, spices, roots and exotic botanicals.
Be inspired by a farmer's market, the spice aisle at your local store, or even you own garden, and create unique combinations like Bacon-Sage Infused Whiskey, Lavender & Cucumber Gin, Cacao & Clove Bitters. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination!
