Alchemist Dreams Review

Ruth Ball. If you’ve been to any trade shows, farmers markets or festivals recently, you will no doubt recognise the name. Ruth is the creator and founder of Alchemist Dreams, an idea that transforms the liqueur category into a new age. If you’re not familiar with the name, to put it simply, she creates hand-crafted liqueurs, any flavour, for any occasion. When was the last time you heard something like that?!
The process is easy too. Pick your base flavour, choose your accent(s), decide what bottle you would like your liqueur in and even create your label and voilà! With a great range of base flavours to choose from including blackberry, fig, lime and orange, and combined with cinnamon, juniper, ginger, elderberry, coffee or even red cinchona bark, you can create something unique and personal to yourself or to your backbar.
If your stuck for ideas though, Ruth has some house blends that you could try including (1) –

Black(berry) Magic – A mysterious blend of blackberry, ginger and Szechuan pepper

Everything’s Rosy – An optimistic blend of raspberry, juniper and rose

Blue Monday – A mellow blend of blueberry, elderberry and vanilla

Winter Warmer – A delicious blend of orange, nutmeg, cinnamon and clove

Drinks Enthusiast creation

I was lucky enough to win one of the Alchemist Dreams competitions, and the prize was the chance to create my own liqueur. So after racking my brains over which flavours would be the best to blend and what would work well, Ruth created me a base ingredient of orange, with a mix of vanilla, cacao and cinnamon.
On the nose, the orange flavour is soft, with small hints of the vanilla and cacao slowly coming through near the end. The palate enjoys a sensation of the vanilla and orange, with a bold hit of cacao and cinnamon following. A sweet mix on the tongue with a slightly thick layer being left for you to savour long after. Wow!

Personalised label

Alchemist Dreams gives you the chance to create that something different, and with many small, niche bars being opened lately, it’s the perfect chance to have a signature range that you can tell your customers it really is a once in a lifetime experience. But it doesn’t have to be for the bar’s though. Alchemist Dreams caters for weddings where you design the flavour, select the bottles and then they can be decorated with a variety of different trimmings to match colour schemes, decor or themes. You can even include special extras such as gold leaf! The labels are hand-printed with a message or can even be professionally printed to include a picture of the happy couple for a truly memorable gift. Alchemist Dreams can also be used for corporate gifts and events as gifts for something a bit more memorable.

I know I’ll be hoping to see a good range of Alchemist Dreams bottles on the backbar when I open my own place, it’s a fantastic idea!

Ruth has come on to a winner here. Give it a try!

  1. Most of these exercises work through toning and strengthening your pelvic area, stimulating the nerves in the coccyx tailbone
    area and easing the pain. Most sufferers miss
    extended periods of work simply to recover. That can be brought about keeping
    your shoulders broad, and not crouched. Our Swetler Sweat Suits
    are designed to ensure minimal air flow is allowed in or out of the suit creating a rise in temperature within the Swetler Sweat Suit
    known as the “sauna effect” the suits are also referred to as Sweat Suits.
    This visually monitors the patients heart and the way it moves when it is
    stressed by exercise.

  2. For the first six weeks post pregnancy you’ll
    probably want to take things a bit easy simply getting
    to know your baby and enjoying new parenthood – post natal exercise may well be the last thing on your mind.

    The three spirtual steps to discovering your life purose are:.

    Excess fat on the front of the neck can be prevented if the jaw line is worked out.
    Though you can have this consequence if you happen
    to go overboard.
