Alchemist_2023_420x420

ALCHEMIST MIXOLOGY

The word Alchemist has a rich history tied to many early Greek scholars. The early Alchemist were able to create gold from anything. The word Alchemist has since then formed into a person who creates something through a seemingly magical process. We do this in the way of creating our own liquid gold in the form of a cocktail.

Victor_Gin_2023_420x420

VICTOR GIN 

Heavy botanical style gin, hand crafted at the Thomson Whisky distillery. We carefully utilise fresh botanicals and we’re heavy-handed on the juniper, resulting in a weighty, flavourful spirit.

Our approach to gin making is simple: take the gin flavours we love and turn up the volume. We chose just five botanicals; juniper, lemon, lemongrass, cardamom and coriander; and distilled them with abundance, so all are present and loud in the mix.

Yu_Gin_2023_420x420

YU GIN

Dreaming of a Cool Refreshing Drink? Yu Gin is the ultimate refreshing gin, based on a unique combination of botanicals: juniper, yuzu, Sichuan pepper, liquorice and many others! With thick skin and many seeds, Yuzu looks rather hostile, but it contains an aromatic richness and unparalleled freshness.

Imagination_420x420

IMAGINATION DISTILLING

Our distillery is nestled in the bush, down a gravel drive, off a single lane road, in the Reikorangi Valley, Kapiti Coast, Aotearoa New Zealand. It's the place where New Zealand's trail-blazing craft brewery, Tuatara, was born and so there's a real sense of 'something in the air' around the place. Spiritual even.

We capture rainwater - hundreds of thousands of litres - on site which we charcoal filter for the production of our gin - it creates an unmistakably pure taste experience. We distill in an eight plate fractionating still using local produce wherever we possibly can.

The rest is secret...
