Distinguished by its content-rich approach and striking design, Alquimie is a new voice in the world of drinks. Forgoing trends and phases in lieu of deeper perspective, we provide a highly engaged conversation with our readers. Presenting a wide array of opinion and objectivity, the publication simplifies the complexities of beverage culture without pretension.
In edition two, we encourage you to explore a couple of drinks that you might not ordinarily contemplate. Our cover story on absinthe travels back to 18th century France and is intertwined with mysterious tones. Of more indulgent offerings, our bordeaux and whisky tastings are for relaxation and recommendation as to how best an arm-chair can be accompanied. In our tasting of an 1890 wine from Madeira the words of Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan are particularly apt; The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore.
Our pieces on real milk and clean water are thought-provoking and hold gravitas for our every day decisions. Our drink with David Bromley unearthed the wisdom of a successful artist whose unfailing pursuit of creativity consume all the hours of his day. We take in the view along the River Thames whilst we chat with The River Caf̩e.
Winner of Australia’s Best Wine Publication in 2015, Alquimie’s edition 6 comes with a bonus supplement: The Australian Table. Featuring Ben Shewry (Attica), Andrew McConnell, a journey to Tasmania's best whisky's and much more.
Edition 6 is a visual feast of food, wine, spirits, beer and many other drinks, featuring a cheese matching with cheese-authority Will Studd, a selection of high qualty Grenache, coffee-talk and internationally famed gypsey-brewer Mikkeller. Breathing new life into drinks, our shared table is a richer place for the guidance that Alquimie provides.
