Bartesian Is the New Kitchen Aid for Alcoholics
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
Technology is here to make our life easier, at least that’s the intent and that becoming alcoholics also want to benefit from new inventions. Okay, that might be a bit harsh to say, but it’s honestly not a good start for you when you buy a machine to mix cocktails at home. That said, it was only a matter of time until this became mainstream and I’m also sure that there is a big market for the Bartesian.
Bartesian recent successfully funded its Kickstarter campaign and raised a total of over $115,00 earlier this month and that alone shows the potential in the market. People have become lazy and want everything at a press of a button, and that includes the favourite cocktail.
With a simple tree-button step-by-step interface, the Bartesian can only make six drinks right now, but that can easily be expanded later on. It uses a capsule principle in the same way as you might know it from coffee makers that now come with everything from pads over pods to capsules. Plop in a capsule, select your fluid, and press a button. The drink is ready.
When you insert a capsule into the Bartesian, it will read a barcode off it in order to add the corresponding liquor and water. The capsules in themselves only contain concentrated mixes for flavour and colour. Then the machine will prompt you for the appropriate glass and your drink is ready.
Bartesian requires four basic liquors: gin, vodka, rum and tequila. Fedorak says they’re experimenting with new recipes, but will launch with the three classics Cosmopolitan, Margarita, and Sex on the Beach and the three originals Uptown Rocks, Bartesian Breeze, and Zest Martini.
This will most likely never be the tool for the aspiring drunk, but it might be a great tool for the weekend warrior that wants to serve fancier drinks than beer at their next party. The Bartesian will set you back $299.00 and a 12-pack of capsules will cost $20.00.
