Description

It’s an all Scandinavian affair at The Harcourt; a Grade II listed Georgian townhouse in London’s Marylebone village, The Harcourt takes up residence opposite an impressive Swedish church and is within a five minute walk of the Swedish Embassy.

Now a beautifully renovated, Scandinavian-inspired dining space, The Harcourt is spread across five rooms adorned with stunning artwork and light woods in distinctive Scandinavian style - though the building tactfully retains its traditional frontage, leaded windows and original fireplaces.

The kitchen is headed up by Finnish chef Kimmo Makkonen, formerly of The Orrery, The Greenhouse and Avenue, who has put together a modern-European menu with more than a nod to Nordic cooking. Expect home-made cures, tasty pickles, lingonberry jam and salted caramel in dishes that range from gravadlax, to Nordic reindeer and dark chocolate mousse.

Behind the bar, guests will find house infusions, a wide range of Nordic-inspired house cocktails and a comprehensive list of spirits – including six distinct types of gin and four gin cocktails.

This gin tasting flight combines the best of British gin and sumptuous Scandinavian cuisine. After a brief introduction from one of the knowledgeable bar staff, guests are free to sample each gin at their own leisure. The gins will be served alongside Chef Makkonen’s cured salmon ‘gravadlax’ and pickled mackerel salad; these cured and pickled small plates are the perfect food pairing with gin, as the juniper complements the smokiness of the salmon, alongside the dill, and the sharpness of the pickled mackerel.

To finish, enjoy a ‘House Selection’ gin cocktail such as the High Garden (Jinzu Gin, violette, lemon and rose foam), or the Berry Pine (The Botanist Gin, pine liqueur and mint), designed by The Harcourt’s resident Finnish mixologist.
