    First you'll need the 5th level of the Alchemy skill and 2 Essence of Fate which can drop from enemies killed in Reckoning mode. There are quite a few master level potions that use the essence so I won't list them all but here is one of the easiest ones (Master Healing Potion):

    Black Cohosh - Embereyes - Bloodroot - Essence of Fate

    At an alchemy bench you'll need to use experiment first to unlock the recipe (unless you've bought it from a merchant somewhere already). The achievement will unlock once you've made the potion from the learned recipe in the craft tab.

    - Thanks to XxFemmeFataleX0 for confirming that making the potion through experiment alone isn't enough and that you still need to craft it the regular way!

    CocoFataleCan confirm that experimenting doesn’t count for the achievement. You need to actually craft it so need 2x essence of fate :)

    pischt0Not sure about this but you need to progress quite a way through the main story to be able to use the Essence of Fate in Alchemy.

    The achievement unlocks when you create a potion, either through experimentation or by using a recipe, where the Essence of Fate is one of the components. All potions that include Essence of Fate as an ingredient are master recipes. In order to make a master recipe, you must be at level 5 in the alchemy skill or higher. Moreover, you cannot use the Essence of Fate in recipes until you complete the fifth main story quest—The Coming Storm. The four quests that precede it are Out of the Darkness, Into the Light, Old Friends/New Foes, & The Hunters Hunted.

    As a reward for completing The Coming Storm, you receive the recipe for Fate Potion. It uses 4 Essences of Fate that are frequently picked up as enemy drops when you defeat them by invoking reckoning mode. Since completing The Coming Storm unlocks your ability to use the Essence of Fate in making potions AND gives you a recipe that includes it as an ingredient, the simplest way to unlock the achievement is to go to an alchemical lab and create a Fate Potion. This assumes you have alchemy skill level 5 or higher and you have acquired four or more Essences of Fate.

    Naturally, any potion with Essence of Fate as an ingredient counts for the achievement. As a rule of thumb, a journeyman recipe (three ingredients) that creates a 'greater' potion can produce the corresponding master level potion by adding an Essence of Fate as a fourth ingredient. For example, a Greater Healing Potion is made by combining the following three ingredients: 3X Black Cohosh, 2X Embereyes, and 1X Bloodroot. When you experiment and use those three ingredients with Essence of Fate as a fourth ingredient, you will create a Master Healing Potion and will pop the achievement (if not previously unlocked).
