Aqua Kyoto launches Fuyu Terrace

Aqua Kyoto celebrates the change in season with a winter terrace transformation. The new Fuyu Terrace, meaning winter in Japanese 冬, features an abundance of silk maple leaves and Japanese acer set with twinkling lights to take diners from noon to night. Guests visiting the Fuyu Terrace will be able to enjoy winter's goldenhour alongside Aqua Kyoto’s new whisky cocktail menu, bringing to life the restaurant's premium whisky portfolio paired with the delicate flavours of Japan.

The Fuyu Terrace will provide Londoners with the ultimate winter hideaway, providing shelter from the outdoor elements under a fully covered and heated terrace with panoramic views of the city. Whether a whisky aficionado looking to sample a selection of premium blends or a cocktail lover who likes to experiment, there will be a cocktail to suit all tastes.

The new menu will feature five whisky based cocktails, inviting guests to experience a range of premium whisky blends, refined flavour combinations and personalised drinks each with a suggested food pairing from Aqua Kyoto’s terrace menu:
