After years spent in libraries, labs, bars and fields, we’ve created plant-based alternatives to alcohol that celebrate what you put into a drink, rather than what you take out.
"Each co-founder brings a unique skillset, Tatiana Mercer co-founded BarChick, the much-loved platform for discovering the world’s best bars; Dash Lilley previously launched a handful of wellness-focused beverage brands including CocoFace and Champatea; and Meeta Gournay is the CEO of Beyond Alcohol, the company behind Three Spirit and leads on operations and finance."
Alcohol-free doesn’t have to mean pleasure-free
Alcohol has long been the wingman of that connection; but in the age of self-driving cars, meat-free meat and missions to Mars, we felt it was high time there was a better way to feel good that didn’t ruin Monday, or mean settling for soda or spirit imitations, on a night out.
“Alchemy: a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.” - Oxford Dictionary
Alchemy is at the heart of everything we do; from the plants we combine in our drinks, to the blending of minds and different expertise of the people who make them. Created by a mix of plant scientists, world-class bartenders, hedonists, herbalists and artists, it’s probably why they feel, taste and do everything a little differently.
“Social alchemists show that, when we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” - Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Meet our team of ‘Social Alchemists’
Our co-founder Dash oversees the creation of our drinks working with a crack team of flavour and function experts that include some of the best bartenders in the world as well as a herbalist, a pharmaceutical scientist and UCL professor, Michael Heinrich, who reviews and advises us on quality, sustainability and efficacy controls of ingredients and their supply chain.
