Founded in 2011 by artist and self-proclaimed activist Ruth Ball, Alchemist Dreams is a South London-based company producing and selling artisanal liqueurs.
The company also provides an online bespoke service, allowing customers to create their own handcrafted custom blend from 20 different flavours. Each liqueur blend starts with a fruity base flavour like blackberry, orange or blueberry. Customers then choose a quirky accent ingredient, ranging from exotic Szechuan pepper to classic vanilla and spicy black pepper. The alcohol comes in the form of an organic neutral grain spirit.
