Select Aperitif Bitter 1L

$49.95

Select Aperitif Bitter 1L. SELECT was created in 1920 in the heart of Venice, at Pilla Distilleries, a
place renowned for the art of liquor making. During the postwar period the
young Pilla Brothers contributed to the rebirth of this magnificent Italian
city.
As aperitif popularity began to grow, SELECT became the star of the
Venetian cocktail scene, and the main ingredient in the Original Venetian
Spritz. Today, SELECT is still recognized as the classic Venetian Aperitif
and enjoyed throughout Venice.
Taste: Complex and intense with bitter notes coming from roots and bark. The spicy and tropical notes marry perfectly with the citrusy ones. Pleasantly persistent aftertaste with fresh and rich notes coming from the citrus fruits and essential oils.
In Venice, a green olive is used as the garnish to create the perfect blend and balance of flavor.

Uniqueness, originality, taste: in no other city in the world these concepts have a particular value as in Venice.

It is no coincidence that Select was born right here, in the Castello district, the historic heart of the city.

It is 1920 and Venice is in full swing after the Second World War. The young Pilla brothers, with their distillery and thanks to their great experience in the liqueur art, know how to seize that moment.

In those years the ritual of the aperitif spread and Select soon became the protagonist. As it was used for appetizers, it was drunk predominantly smooth, with the addition of soda or soda, but also mixed in numerous cocktails.

Already in the mid-sixties, a new fashion began to spread in Venice that would explode, then, starting from the seventies when the Venetian Spritz was affirmed in the version we know today. A third ingredient is added to white wine and sparkling water: the Select.

Almost a century has passed since then, but still today Select is recognized as one of the true icons of the Venetian aperitif, proposed by historic clubs in the Lagoon and by bartenders who love to experiment.
