Alchemy Bottle Shop is a small, independently-owned boutique located in the heart of Oakland’s Grand Lake neighborhood. We specialize in craft and artisanal spirits, as well as bitters, wines, beers, glassware and barware. We strive to support small, independently owned producers who are honest about their ingredients and put a level of care and attention into their process that can’t be matched on an industrial scale.
Through classes, tastings and events we aim to provide an engaging atmosphere where our customers can explore and learn about spirits, wine and cocktails regardless of previous experience. We frequently host producers and industry experts in an effort to pass on as much knowledge as possible, and offer regularly scheduled tastings to help expose customers to a wide variety of products and styles. We are dedicated to making our space friendly, accessible and approachable to both novices and seasoned connoisseurs alike.
Alchemy Bottle Shop was opened in March 2014 by Tova and Peter Mustacich. The store is our labor of love, inspired by our deep enthusiasm for craft spirits as well as our appreciation for the vibrant neighborhood we live and work in. We love to hear from our customers so please feel free to send us an email, or better yet, stop in and say hello!
