Best Bar Podcast: Featuring Kim & Scott Holstein of Twisted Alchemy

Cold-Pressed Juice Cocktails and Twisted Alchemy on The Best Bar Podcast Ever

Last week, Chicago’s most popular storytellers, drinkers, and admirers of cold-pressed juice cocktails, Justin and Milos of The Best Bar Podcast, invited our very own Twisted Alchemy founders Kim and Scott Holstein to speak on their show. The interview covered all parts of Kim and Scott’s twisted past, from the humble origins of a Tex-Mex joint in Paris, to Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzel company, to Twisted Alchemy as we know it today. 

Talking Cold-Pressed Juice Cocktails

Justin and Milos are bartenders and mixologists themselves who definitely appreciate crafted cold-pressed juice cocktails. They

were excited to hear about Twisted Alchemy’s attention to detail, curating each bottle of cold-pressed juice to keep consistent flavor profiles that eliminates a large amount of labor typically needed at bars and restaurants serving high caliber cocktails. Justin remarked, “Juicing fresh is what everybody wants to do, right? It’s great but it lasts for that day and then you’re paying someone, who knows how much, to come in early and juice every day. And you’re doing this every day! Or you could just open up one or two of these and you’re good to go.”

That sentiment is exactly why we created Twisted Alchemy 100% pure cold-pressed juice. By using state-of-the-art HPP technology we’re able to provide 12,000% better shelf life than squeezing on premise. Inside our tightly controlled, always refrigerated, cold-pressed juicing facility, we are able to produce superior fresh-squeezed juice without the use of preservatives or damaging heat pasteurization.
