We believe everyone deserves to drink the best.

Blending old-world tradition with modern technology, we are uncompromising in our pursuit to deliver the best tasting spirits. Every time.

We became tired of the “egh!’ moment that comes with your first sip of liquor. Your eyes squeeze shut, your nose scrunches up, you think your throat may possibly be on fire? Sure, we love a good spirit, but we all know that it can come with a few harsh notes.

So, we developed a way to clarify alcohol and reduce impurities, right from your kitchen counter, turning your “egh” moment into an “aaah” moment. The results are a smoother sip, a well-rounded taste, and a much more attractive overall experience.

“All spirits and most wines that were restructured showed improvement. Spirits gained desired complexity and benefited from a reduction of aggressive alcohol character. The process improved the length and complexity of most of the wines.”

Our Patented Process

Alchemy Beverages Inc. (ABI) and its Clarification Process is disrupting the spirits business by changing the way alcohol is produced and consumed across the $500 billion spirits business.

Our patented (and patent pending) technology is a unique process that removes the harshness of the alcohol, improves the flavor profile and elevates the consumer experience.

 

Learn more about our technology

Our patented and patent-pending technologies are set to disrupt the spirits and liquor business. While the spirits industry has gone through changes and improvements in the fermentation and distillation process;  in the last 400 years, there have been no major technology developments—until today.  With the addition of our Clarification Process, we have fundamentally changed the consumer perception, taste, and experience in enjoying alcoholic beverages.

The core principle behind the technology is a dynamic flow-through of fluids through our reactors where fluid molecules are collapsing into micro-vapor bubbles while creating enormous energy and subsequently making desired changes in chemical and physical structures of spirits and wines. The end result is a dramatically accelerated chemical reaction that previously took hours, days, and years to achieve is produced instantly, with substantially improved final results.

Applying this technology to alcohol, our Clarification Process produces physical and chemical restructuring at the molecular level.  Molecular chains in the alcohol are broken to nano-particle size, thus creating an enormous force and energy that produces a change in the molecular structure and bonding in spirits. The process does not alter the proof or filter the spirits, it simply reduces the harsh tasting acids and toxins naturally found in alcohol. The result is a dramatic reduction in the ‘alcohol burn’, a significant enhancement in the taste profile and a reduction in the impurities.

Our Product

BarMuze is a tabletop device that helps spirit lovers experience the full flavors and notes of their drink by removing impurities and harshness for a cleaner, smoother taste — it’s a drink upgrade.

By miniaturizing the industrial scale high-pressure technology into a low-pressure unit for home use, ABI is creating a product that can completely change the consumers buying preferences or enhance their current brand preferences.

Taste. Believe. Enjoy.

Learn more about BarMuze

As consumers continue to search for a better or higher end beverage, it typically means that the price tag continues to increase for the resulting products. Our Barmuze home appliance makes this search easier and almost obsolete. Now consumers can upgrade their existing brand of distilled spirit without increasing the cost of their favorite beverage.

 

ABI and its technology partner, CTi, spent over 4 years in the development of a home appliance that can accomplish the same result as its industrial-sized high-pressure Clarification Technology. In early 2018, the first functional prototype of the Barmuze home appliance was created and it delivered beyond expectations. Utilizing an independent sommelier, significant improvement was found to have taken place in every spirit that was tested and modest to significant improvement was recorded for each of the wines processed through the unit.  In continued testing, it was estimated that approximately 9 out of 10 individuals noted significant improvement in the spirits they tested and well more than 50% of the wines demonstrated a more enjoyable taste profile. In what was one of our most important testing results, Rob Mondavi and his tasting team determined that all of the spirits were dramatically improved and ⅔ of the wines tested showed improvement. Rob was sufficiently impressed, that he now has become a leading member of our Advisory Board.

“I must admit I was extremely skeptical when introduced to Clarification Technology. I see lots of ‘technology’ that really adds nothing to improve wine or spirits. However, after doing a series of taste testings I became a believer, as a profound qualitative improvement was obvious and have now joined ABI’s Board of Advisors to help them bring this product to the everyday consumer.”

A leading international university conducted laboratory testing on ABI’s Clarified alcohol and determined the following:

The patented Clarification process significantly reduces, by up to 50%, the content of impurities in the alcohol.
The patented Clarification process significantly reduces, by up to 50%, the content of impurities in the alcohol, such as mono-and polyaromatic compounds (derivatives of benzene, phenol, tyrosine, tryptophan, benzaldehyde, and other organic compounds). A significant reduction of impurities in alcohol and alcohol solutions after Clarification can improve the flavor profile of these beverages.
The patented Clarification process improves the flavor profile.
In aqueous solutions of ethanol, the existence of various molecular structures like water clusters, clusters of ethanol molecules, or heterogeneous water-ethanol associates is possible. At high alcohol content (~40 vol %) ethanol clusters appear. These ethanol clusters undoubtedly stimulate the palate differently from either water clusters or the clathrate-like water-ethanol structures. Even in the absence of “taste” in the traditional sense, vodka drinkers could express preference for a particular structure.

Clarified Spirits

Combining the finest ingredients available in conjunction with our patented Clarification Process, Cameo Vodka has emerged as the highest rated vodka produced in the United States, earning the coveted Platinum SIP award.

ABI is actively working with national distribution outlets to develop private label spirits using the proprietary Clarification Process technology.

While our primary focus is currently on the vodka market, the process produces the same ultra-premium spirits across all alcohol brands. We anticipate a broad adoption of this technology not only because of its unparalleled taste characteristics but also because it can be delivered at a very attractive price point.

As more retailers turn to private label offerings to boost margins and increase product offerings for their customers, a unique opportunity has developed for our company and its proprietary Clarifying Technology.

Large retailers have seen significant revenues for their private label distilled spirits that tally hundreds of millions of dollars annually. However, most of this success has come at the low and mid-level quality entries. The last 8 years of growth in distilled spirits has been propelled by the high-end products and retailers are looking to solve the challenge of offering a high-end private label option that meets their margin targets and still gives the consumer a price point that is below the national brands.

This opportunity exists in both the United States and the rest of the world.  We will seek licensing agreements to dramatically expand the private label distribution opportunities outside of the United States.

About us

Alchemy Beverages Inc. (ABI) and its Clarification Technology (CT) is disrupting the spirits business by changing the way alcohol is produced and consumed across the $500 billion spirits business.

The patented (and patent pending) technology is a unique process that removes the harshness of the alcohol, improves the flavor profile and elevates the consumer experience. Additionally, initial laboratory test analysis has indicated a significant reduction of harmful acids that many believe is a major contributor to hang over effects.

ABI is applying this technology across two major business lines: Clarified Spirits and the Barmuze home appliance.

Clarified Spirits

Through the application of industrial-scale Clarification Technology, we are able to offer an ultra-premium spirit at a price point that is well below competitive products. After studying the competitive landscape, we realized there is a large market segment that has not been addressed and can be profitably filled by applying our technology through the ‘white labeling’ of spirits for large retail distributors. A more full discussion of this market segment, as well as the financial opportunity, is fully discussed in this plan.

Barmuze

By miniaturizing our industrial scale technology into a small consumer-friendly unit for home use, ABI has created a product that can completely change the consumers buying preferences or enhance their current brand choices. While many products exist today to improve the profile of wine, no competitive products exist in the marketplace that offers such enhancement to spirits and we believe this offers ABI the opportunity to become the next SodaStream or Keurig.

The Barmuze home unit dramatically improves any spirit that is run through the machine and has also had significant success in adding complexity to young wines while reducing the presence of sulfides. In addition, we intend to provide our customers with “Flavoroids”, which will allow them to become ‘mixologists’ and create their botanical and flavored spirits (and wines), right in their own home.

Future generations of Barmuze will be designed for the restaurant and bar market, followed by a home unit that will contain a proprietary usage system. Both of these opportunities will generate substantial recurring revenue for ABI.

Taste/Believe/Enjoy

The reaction when consumers have tested our product has been dramatic. Most consumers of spirits can relate to the “egh!’ moment that comes with your first sip of liquor. Your eyes squeeze shut, your nose scrunches up, you think your throat may possibly be on fire? With Clarification Technology we turn this “egh” moment into an “aaah” moment.

Our strategy is to make Clarification Technology the accepted next step in processing alcohol and deliver to the consumer a smoother sip, a well-rounded taste, and a much more enjoyable overall experience—and in the process, create significant value for our shareholders.
