Alchemy is many things, a speculative science and philosophy that encompasses and enfolds many different theorems and beliefs.
At its core, Alchemy is quite simple - An endeavor to take common elements and transmute them into something greater.
This quest for transmutation was used by the alchemists of old in an attempt to finally achieve the Magnum Opus, the Great Work, the turning of a base substance such as lead into the perfect form of gold.
Success eluded them. We have chosen a different path.
We treat it with fervor and dedication. Ingredients are our base material, cuisine our Great Work. Through spices and herbs, sugars and oils, we strive to transform a combination of separate ingredients into a single, cohesive vision.
Alchemists created the first cocktail bitters and tinctures, and thus the first cocktail.
Think of the parallels -
An alchemist in his lab toiling to create the Philosopher’s Stone; The mixologist in his bar pouring and concocting to find the perfect balance; The chef in his kitchen pairing ingredients to acquire a spectacular flavor profile.
So what is Alchemy?
It’s the balance of all natural things. All of us. Every drink and every plate. Each striving to be the Magnum Opus, the Great Work.
