THE Cocktails with Swift bar

Make time for THE cocktail

London’s Soho is buzzing with lively pubs, clubs and bars, but if you’re looking for a nook that’s truly special (and recognised by Tales of the Cocktail, Time Out London and Class Magazine) check out its stylish new addition: Swift.

Opened in 2016 by husband and wife Bobby Hiddleston and Mia Johansson and their partners, Swift’s exciting range of cocktails draws on their vast experience working in bars from Edinburgh to the New York. Their CVs feature an impressive list of some of the most innovative cocktail bars across the world, including HIX Soho and Milk & Honey – so it’s fair to say they know their Manhattans from their Mojitos.

The couple have combined all their skill and knowledge to create Swift. Following the mantra ‘simplicity is better – we make classics with a twist’, they’ve created an exclusive menu for The Glenlivet, including a Scotsman’s Daiquiri (where sweet mango meets single malt) and the ultimate after-dinner delight – Founder’s Wakeup Call. Grated dark chocolate rests on a frothy mix of coffee liqueur, espresso, a vanilla syrup drizzle and, of course, a measure of Founder’s Reserve. It’s much like an Espresso Martini but with the substitution of THE important ingredient…

So whether you’re catching up with friends upstairs or settling in for a cosy rendezvous downstairs, make time for Swift and the Whisky, The Glenlivet.
