Pre-midsummer’s celebration last Thursday!

I had the utmost pleasure of being invited to celebrate Stockholms Bränneri’s launch of their new spirit: an akvavit perfect for Midsummers! And as it was an early celebration of my favourite tradition it of course rained when we first arrived in true Midsummer’s fashion. We were served akvavit and tonics and after a while, in again true Midsummers fashion, it stopped raining and the sun came out!
After we enjoyed the sun and our drinks we went inside and were served the most delicious dinner (even though I splurged and had a little too much fish and felt a little the next day, haha, but 100% worth it!) and cocktails by Ludde Grenmo: a well-known, talented bartender who recently started working at SB as their Brand Director.
The akvavit itself is like a perfect love child between gin and akvavit as it has classic botanicals such as juniper and coriander but also is infused with elderflower, fennel seeds, caraway and dill flower. Den finns tillgänglig genom Systembolaget den 5/6!
It’s still surreal to me that I get invited to these kinds of events but I’m eternally grateful for all of it. It’s truly an honour! Thank you Anna, Calle, Erik and Ludde for a magical evening!
