Inspired by tradition and moved by innovation, at Alchemy we celebrate craft products. Sip a bespoke cocktail at Alchemy Bar, or speak to our team about the selection of craft spirits. With close to 100 gins, and unique rums and brandies, you will be spoilt for choice.
Soak up the drinks with simple but delicious bar snacks, or pop in next door to Alchemy Kitchen, our restaurant which serves tapas-style small plate dishes perfect for sharing and exploration. All-day brunch on weekends can be perfectly paired with the rotating selection of wines and bubbles available by the glass.
Step into The 'Other' Room, our cellar and retail outlet, for more bottle options.
At our on-site Blackstrap Craft Distillery, we create East Coast inspired gins and rums available for tasting at the bar and restaurant.
Visit us for a unique exploration of all things craft!

Years ago at a well known wine event in Durban, a friend made a comment about the people behind the wine, or as he called them, "the wine people" - in essence, that they were all interesting, engaging, opinionated yet down to earth, and generally just bloody nice. Recent months have seen many wine makers visit the greater Durban area, providing an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. Each shared some pearls of wisdom or reminded me of previously learnt lessons.
