Get Ready For A Scandi-Style Midsummer (in East London)

For two weeks, starting Friday 21st we can forget that the English Summer hasn’t lived up to its promise, and transport ourselves to a Swedish hideaway overlooking a tranquil lake. Well, that’s sort of the idea.

Rekorderlig have set up a Scandinavian style summerhouse in the heart of East London where guests will be able to temporarily step out of the bustling city and enjoy a pint of cider.

Alongside their popular premium ciders, the Midsummer bar will be serving up a range of unique cider cocktails, including the Swedish House Beet – a sweet and sour mix of muddled beetroot, Courvoisier brandy, mint leaves and Rekorderlig Apple and Rekorderlini – a blend of Rekorderlig Pear and Champagne, fused with fresh lemon juice and chocolate syrup.

Native Scandinavian chefs from The Disappearing Dining Club will also be dishing out Kory med brods (Swedish style hot dogs, of course) with freshly made toppings including wild lingonberry - made with Rekorderlig Wild Berries, cucumber relish, prawn salad and Danish Remoulade.

Tickets cost £10 and entitles each person to a complimentary Rekorderlig Cider of their choice and a Swedish BBQ tasting bite.
