20 stunning images of drinks under the microscope

24th March, 2014 by Lauren Eads

These psychedelic images may look like something from a child’s kaleidoscope, but they are in fact what some of your favourite beer, wine and spirits look like when magnified 1,000 times under a microscope.

vodka tonicThe series of Bevshots photographs are the work of Florida State University’s research scientist Michael Davidson.

The images are made by crystallising the drink on a lab slide under a microscope and then passing a polarised light through the crystal with each image then magnified more than 1,000 times.

While it may sound simple, the process requires very sophisticated and expensive equipment, a detailed knowledge of photography and photomicrography, perseverance, intuition and patience.

Scientist Michael Davidson began photographing drinks in 1992 selling his microphotographs to help fund his lab. Davidson’s first drinks images were printed onto a collection of cocktail neckties, and have since now evolved into the world of art.

All images are available for sale as canvas or metallic prints from Bevshots

Scroll through to see what your favourite drink looks like under the microscope…

Elsewhere a Hawaii-based scientist has put wine under the telescope revealing similarly psychedelic images.

    Why are “Gin” and “Dry Martini” so different?
    Clearly the man needs a Churchill-esque education in how much vermouth to include…

  2. Kurt Burris says:

    I wish he had included a slide of a yeast cell, which is the mother of all these delightful concoctions. They are stunningly beautiful under the right light and magnification

  3. Ron says:

    I make Kaleidoscopes, is there any of these microscopic photos I can get for free or a inexpensive price?
