A Merry Set Menu
Available from 14th November – 24th December and taking the form of a Julbord – a traditional Scandinavian sharing feast - head chef Jonas Karlsson has created a set spread of Nordic-inspired delights. Available for a minimum of two guests and priced at £90 per person, enjoy starters of traditionally breaded ham and homemade mustard; a trio of pickled herrings; and gravlax with dill and a punchy mustard sauce.

For mains, classic Swedish meatballs, Prinskorv sausage and braised short ribs will be served with pickled cucumbers and lingonberry jam alongside sublime sides of Jansson's temptation, sweet slow cooked red cabbage, creamed kale and green beans. For a suitably sweet finish, tuck into treats of Ris a la Malta with sour cherry sauce, Swedish petit fours and a selection of cheeses with cloudberry crackers.

For larger celebratory dinners and Christmas parties, book one of Aquavit's two private dining rooms - the intimate Copenhagen room for up to 15 seated guests, or the spacious Stockholm room for up to 63 seated or 100 standing.

Christmas Cocktails and Seasonal Sips
Sure to leave you feeling merry and bright, indulge in a festive tipple or two - it is Christmas after all. For a limited time, enjoy a glass of God Jul! – a sweet mix of Kinahans Kasc Project Whiskey, passionfruit and cinnamon syrup and bitters with accents of seasonal spice and zesty lemon swirling throughout. For a bitter blend with herbal hints, The Tomten combines Cynar aperitif with gin and Aperol and a peel of citrusy orange. Skål!

A Hamper for the Holidays
Give the gift of Aquavit London to food-loving friends and family this year with the new luxury Christmas hamper (£199). Expect a sparkling selection of Nordic delights including gravlax; rye bread; herring; homemade mulled wine; Lalani & Co tea; champagne and a £100 Aquavit London voucher all nestled in a stylish wicker hamper. To purchase, simply call the team on 020 7024 9848 to arrange collection from the restaurant with 24 hours' notice or buy via Supper, available to order from 14th November.
