Alkemy was made to taste a certain way. It was made to be enjoyed, drinking Alkemy is not supposed to be hard work or a scholarly or philosophical activity. Just really good. With this in mind, we created our granite filter. Originally designed to take the “funk” out of sugar cane rum this filter system takes away lots of the more aggressive flavours that can make some spirits hard to drink. Not that these are bad or wrong, it’s just not what Alkemy is about. We also try to take as many of these out in the distilling process as possible. It takes more work to make it this way but it really makes a great drink
