THE ALCHEMIST

The Alchemist possesses an incredibly extensive and interesting array of cocktails. Many are presented in laboratory-styled beakers, vials, kettles and soda siphons and a device which can only be likened to a bunsen burner. Share the Mad Hatter's Tea Party if you want to see the extremities of their cocktails.
