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!

We’ve been putting our lovely new iStill Nanos through their paces the last couple of weeks, testing them with everyone from enthusiastic beginners to ardent spirits experts, and they’ve made some incredible drinks! So if you’ve ever wanted to create your own bespoke aquavit or gin, why not check out our new workshops? Over the course of a three-hour masterclass, we’ll provide you with all the knowledge and tools you need to design and distil a bottle of delicious craft spirit to take home and enjoy (as well as a few cocktails along the way for some liquid inspiration!). Book your slot on our website, through @wecandoo_uk, or on @classbento_uk #vintersol #aquavit #akvavit #distillery #distilling #handmade #scandi #scandinavia #nordic #putney #london #londonarches #istillfamily #istillnano #ginschool #aquavitschool #crafty #diygin

After reorganising the distillery layout for a better tour experience, it's great to take a break to baptise our new bar with a classic! #vintersol #aquavit #akvavit #distillery #distilling #handmade #scandi #scandinavia #nordic #putney #london #londonarches #istillfamily #fredagsbar
