Playing around with the camera this #fredagsbar, felt the muse take me and got a bit artsy with the chalk. What do you think? One of the perks of the job, I also get a bonus G&T! In honour of all our new followers we met last week slinging A&Ts and G&Ts at @theboatraces, you can get 10% off all drinks products on our website with the code ANDTONIC10. Expires next Friday! #vintersol #aquavit #akvavit #distillery #distilling #handmade #scandi #scandinavia #nordic #putney #london #londonarches #istillfamily

Kicking back with some No.1 Original Aquavit, seen here served on our awesome new mats designed by @sam_fortune and produced by @thirstys_beermats. Looking forward to getting some good use out of them this summer when we open up our outdoor bar! #vintersol #aquavit #akvavit #distillery #distilling #handmade #scandi #scandinavia #nordic #putney #london #londonarches #istillfamily

We are releasing a delicious new addition to our Double Measure range of premixed cocktails! It's made with our No. 2 Original Aquavit, limoncello, and bay leaf syrup, but it needs a name 🤔 Comment your suggestions below and we will pick the best and put the question to the people in the form of a poll! #vintersol #aquavit #akvavit #distillery #distilling #handmade #scandi #scandinavia #nordic #putney #london #londonarches #istillfamily #premixedcocktails #premix

Our latest batch of No.2 Original Aquavit has settled, which meant this week saw us bottling and labelling! Very satisfying when it’s all done. #vintersol #aquavit #akvavit #distillery #distilling #handmade #scandi #scandinavia #nordic #putney #london #londonarches #istillfamily

This week we bottled a batch of wonderfully creative aquavit developed by one of our recent Aquavit & Gin School guests. Made with botanicals including dill, sumac, nettle and wakame seaweed, it’s an absolutely unique (and delicious!) take on the spirit. If you fancy trying your hand at distilling, why not check out our A&G school for yourself? You get to enjoy the fruits of your own labour, plus the personal, handcrafted spirit makes an excellent gift for friends and family! You can find details on our website, or through the link in our bio. #vintersol #aquavit #akvavit #distillery #distilling #handmade #scandi #scandinavia #nordic #putney #london #londonarches #istillfamily #handcrafted #diycrafts #craftginlondon #craftgin

It’s a bit frosty out there this week! We recommend trying some No. 1 Original Aquavit in hot chocolate to help you keep warm. I offered my other half a taste and they demanded their own mugful!
