AT ALCHEMY, WE CELEBRATE CRAFT SPIRITS. WE PROUDLY STOCK MANY CRAFT DRINKS PRODUCED IN SOUTH AFRICA, WITH A STRONG FOCUS ON GIN, OF COURSE.
Our commitment, work ethic and dedication to excellence are old fashioned. But our cocktails are not. We love the classics and serve many that have stood the test of time, but often with a unique Alchemy twist or a bit of innovation to draw from the emergence of craft ingredients.
As we also make the stuff, we naturally have a strong focus on gin. Our favourite mixes are inspired by gin’s rich history, it’s checkered past and enduring charm. You don’t need to be a 'gintellectual' to enjoy this complex spirit - you can try one of our house combos, gin-based cocktails, tasting boards, or check out the gin selection at the bar and speak to our team for inspiration.
Rum has an origin in slavery, but it also has an origin in the world being connected and coming to where we are today. Gaining in popularity around the globe, we serve excellent versions of some historic rum cocktails.
In keeping with our local, craft approach, our beer on tap is from our friends at That Brewing Company in the heart of Durban, with rotating bottled choices from a number of local brewers and unique craft ciders provide a range of flavours and something different.
Someone once said that coffee is what you drink until it’s time to have wine. We serve excellent examples of both. Windmeul Kelder offers a lovely range of great value wines, available in KZN at Alchemy only. The superb Cellar Range makes up our house wine offering, all available by the carafe. Step into The ‘Other’ Room, our cellar and retail outlet, for more bottle options and to awaken your inner oenophile.
Sourced from Terbodore Coffee Roasters, we use Mac Espresso beans, and the Great Dane for our French press..
Soak up the drinks with simple but delicious bar snacks, or pop in next door to Alchemy Kitchen, our restaurant which serves all-day brunch, perfectly paired with the rotating selection of wines and bubbles available by the glass, as well as tapas-style small plate dishes ideal for sharing and exploration.
