With Scandinavian chic being very much in vogue and the much vaunted Danish concept of "hygge" entering the English lexicon, we thought it made sense to introduce our guests to some of the leading Scandinavian bars at Cocktails in the City London. 

Luckily for us Woodford Reserve have a history of bringing world leading venues to other countries and so have invited three establishments featured in World's 50 Best Bars to showcase their talent at CITC. Together we present...

Ruby - Copenhagen

Hidden away in an old listed building from 1740 situated in the oldest part of Copenhagen, Ruby is spread over two floors in a 'hyggelig' interior serving seasonal cocktails and classic potions.
