FAQ

What is Bartesian, how does it work?

Bartesian is an innovative, effortless way to enjoy and serve premium cocktails on demand at the press of a button. Bartesian was made to not only be perfect at home, but for Food Service/Hospitality applications as well.

You’ll stock your Bartesian with the base spirits: Vodka, Tequila, Whisky, Gin/Rum as well as water. Then, select the appropriate Bartesian recyclable cocktail capsule which contains all of the bitters, extracts, and juice concentrates that would otherwise need to be individually sourced, purchased and stored.

Once the capsule is inserted into Bartesian, the cocktail is immediately identified and suggests proper glassware on the user interface touchscreen. Bartesian then prompts the user to customize the pour strength of the drink ranging from mocktail to strong, then simply press 'Mix'

Bartesian will automatically and precisely draw the spirits and water over their own independent lines. They mix with the cocktail capsule contents and then are dispensed in seconds. When done, Bartesian auto rinses and is ready for the next premium cocktail.

Is there alcohol in Bartesian cocktail capsules?

No. Our cocktail capsules contain everything needed beyond the alcohol to make your favorite cocktails—including bitters, extracts, and juice concentrates.

Which spirits do I stock my Bartesian with?

Bartesian has dedicated reservoirs for Whiskey, Tequila, Vodka, and Gin/Rum.

Can I use any brand of spirit I want?

Absolutely. Bartesian gives you the freedom to use your personal favorites.

Do your cocktail capsules expire? Do I keep them in my fridge?

Our cocktail capsules are dated to indicate when they will taste freshest if stored at room temperature. While not required, we recommend refrigerating your capsules—this greatly extends the freshness.

Can I customize the strength of my cocktail?

Yes! Using the Bartesian touchscreen, you can customize your cocktail pour strength from mocktail to strong.

Does Bartesian require a smartphone app to operate?

No. Bartesian’s intuitive operation is done entirely via its simple touchscreen interface.

How do the drinks taste?

Each of our craft cocktails tastes excellent and authentic. We've worked with expert mixologists to create premium quality cocktails with premium quality taste. Our award winning product has been tested and proven at luxury events across North America.

Are the drinks made from powder?

Absolutely not. Each capsule contains concentrated liquid ingredients—fruit juices, bitters, and non-alcoholic liqueurs, so they taste as fresh as possible.

What variety of drinks can Bartesian make?

The possibilities are endless! While there are so many great cocktails, we had to choose just seven to launch with. However, we are actively developing additional recipes, and would love to know which cocktails you’d love to see featured in our lineup! You can send requests to hello@bartesian.com

Do I have to use a cocktail shaker?

No need, Bartesian does all the hard work and mixing for you.  

Is there a warranty?

Yes, there is a 12-month limited warranty on the Bartesian Cocktail Maker. Feel free to reach out to our support team any time at support@bartesian.com or 1.833.501.6889 with any questions or concerns

How do I clean my Bartesian?

Bartesian has an automated self-rinse cycle for simple upkeep. Simply select the desired cleaning cycle and sit back while the system internally cleanses the lines. Each of the liquor bottles is also easily removable and dishwasher safe.

If your Bartesian does not respond or recognize when a cocktail capsule has been inserted:

Open the lid, use a soft dry cloth to wipe off the cocktail capsule lid and bar code reader on the underside of the lid to clear any potential water spots on the reader.

Ensure the lid is full closed/latched.

Care tip/prevention: 

This is more likely to occur if a cocktail capsule is left in your Bartesian for an extended period after making a cocktail. For best performance remove used cocktail capsules shortly it has been dispensed.

If your Bartesian is being used in a high volume environment with many cocktails in close succession, wipe the barcode reader after every 6-7 cocktails dispensed.
