In the Fall/Winter 2022 issue of The Alchemist, we have everything you need to stay warm and happy during the wintry days ahead.
In this issue, YVR Barfly ventures to Whistler to drink in the mountain resort’s cocktail scene, Doris Sun heads to Maraca in Santo Domingo and our publisher Gail Nugent hits Berlin, where the cocktail community has just gathered for the world’s biggest bar and beverage trade show.
Also: In “Brandy Rebrand,” Reece Sims discovers how B.C. distillers are putting delicious new life into an old spirit. Allie Turner checks out the cool new artisan colas for your next Cuba Libre. Mike Usinger chats with Dylan Riches, Published on Main’s suave barkeep, in our new column, At the Bar. In Still Life, Charlene Rooke gets the custom treatment with bespoke gins. Home Bar columnist Matthew Benevoli explains how to fill your cocktails with the appealing aroma of smoke. Our tasting panel takes one for the team and samples ultra-luxe spirits. And we offer plenty of cocktail recipes for you to try at home.
Even more exciting, we’re kicking off the second annual Vancouver Cocktail Week, presented by The Alchemist, March 5 to 11, 2023. VCW23 will be bigger and better and with slightly fewer pandemic restrictions. (We hope.) Get your tickets soon because we expect many events will sell out quickly.
