Have you ever sat there staring at the rich amber color of your whiskey and thought “man, that is beautiful”? Well your enhanced perception wasn’t only due to the effects of alcohol. As it turns out, some of your favorite drinks look good both in the glass and under the microscope. Seriously, these images are suitable for framing.
“What you can see in the magnified pictures are the crystalised carbohydrates that have become sugars and glucose,” explained Lester Hutt, 35, the founder of Bevshots.
“Each image was created by using a pipette of each particular drink and squeezing a drop onto a slide. Then the droplets are allowed to dry out and the slide is placed under the microscope and a picture taken.”
It can take up to four weeks for the alcohol to dry out completely in an airtight container, and the whole process can take up to three months.
