I love living in London, moving to London was the best thing we ever did. It’s brought me and my blog so many new and exciting opportunities. I get to hang out with bloggers and industry people that I’ve admired from afar for so long, it’s amazing! I feel so lucky to be able to do all these interesting things.
Anyway, today was one of those days as I was invited along to the Rekorderlig Winter Forest Bar on Brick Lane in London, so me and London Beauty Queen (Hayley) popped along for the experience. I’ve been off alcohol for about two years, but recently started drinking again, so this was perfect timing.
The Winter Forest Bar has been set up to promote the arrival of Rekorderlig Winter Cider, the bar is on Brick Lane in the Truman Brewery and is full of real trees and real crunchy leaves under foot. It’s truly a magical location.
Lit with atmospheric blue and orange lights, with the smoke machine on, you really do feel like you’ve been transported to a Swedish forest. Tickets are now sold up, but for only £5 you gain entrance and a fabulous tasting platter, which includes four glasses of different flavoured cider and a Arctic cheese croquette topped with cloudberry chutney. Totally beautiful presentation and delicious.
In addition to your complimentary tasting platter you can buy Rekorderlig cocktails, hot Winter Cider (yum!) and Swedish snacks including Swedish meatballs and Daim bar roulade (should have tried that one!) Frankly, a bargainous night out, quick visit and a beautiful experience. If only it was a permanent addition to London!
Although tickets are officially long since sold out, you can still buy tickets on the door, pop by and see if you can get in. It’s recommended to try after 8pm, when you could get in.
Great experience and now I just need to find a local stockist of Rekorderlig Cider so I can have it at home too! All of the drinks were delicious, however, my only problem with the brand is that it’s really difficult to spell!
Did you make it to the Winter Forest Bar? What did you think?
Which is your favourite flavour of cider?
