Microscopic Images of Alcoholic Drinks

8 August 2011

All of these impressive photos of alcoholic beverages under a microscope uncover the elements that make up some of our preferred tipples. Similar to photos of snowflakes, each and every beverage is unique, while observed below when zoomed about 1, 000 times under a high tech lab microscope. Created by United States company Bevshots, these are available as artworks for potential buyers which recognize the concealed beauty of alcoholic beverages. Catching the small elements that define most popular drinks such as vodka, pina colada and Chablis.
"What you can see in the magnified pictures are the crystalised carbohydrates that have become sugars and glucose, " described Lester Hutt, 35, the founder of Bevshots.
He describes, "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 will take approximately 4 weeks for the alcohol to dry up entirely in the airtight container, and the complete procedure may take around 3 months.

  5. These are very interesting. I wonder what makes the colours, whether they're really there or if it has to do with the lighting or if they were coloured afterwards.

  6. I think the heavy post-processing that makes these marketable as artwork is a mistake in this form of analysis. These are deceptive landscapes that merely create buzz around terms already exploited.

  7. Liquids in an electron microscope? Really?

  8. @Anonymous If you took the time to read it, they left a droplet to dry out into sugars/glucose.

  9. "the droplets are allowed to dry out and the slide is placed under the microscope"

    It's not a long article, Anonymous.

  10. so its not alcohol at all, its just any solids left behind, because ethanol is more apt to evaporate than water unless its at its at an azetropic concentration. this is crap. i disapprove.

  13. @art60, the inevitable coca-cola is for the morning after a rough night of drinking.

  14. I think what Anonymous might have been getting at is that these aren't exactly indicative of their drink. They might not be consistently the same types of patterns, and the variables that would govern these features would be air temperature, air-flow, and amount of sugar in the drink, and has very little to do with the initial drink. This could be wrong though, it'd just be nice to have maybe a few examples of each drink.

  15. ^it says that were dried in an airtight container

  16. it's mostly amount and type of sugars that make them different which has everything to do with the type of drink.
    people complaining about colorization where does it say electron microscope it clearly says 1000x which you can get for 30 bucks at a hobby store.
    we did these same slides sans alcoholic beverages in 7th grade with groupings to compare effects of heat, sunlight, vibration, being open ect

  21. It's great to not appreciate the ingenuity of this unique artwork and criticize it on a public forum. I wish my ego was that big!

  26. What about white wine and differences between red wines, good or bad, bordeaux and bourgogne?

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is clearly photoshopped. Look at how broken the lines are in the martini for example. Congratulations everyone, you all fell for it. Way to go morons.

  28. Wow this are amazing and artistic beauty and design of alcoholic drinks in a microscopic way..I like it..

  29. It looks like the pictures were taken under cross polarised light. Geologists use it to see minerals in rocks. Geologists also drink a lot so they might have had something to do with this project!

  30. It looks like these might have been taken under cross polarised light. Geologists use it to look at minerals in rocks. They also like to drink so there might be a connection there!
