Uniqueness, legacy, taste: in no other city in the world are these concepts as valuable as in Venice.
And it is no coincidence that the story of Select Aperitivo began right here, in the district of Castello, the historical heart of this intriguing city.
The year was 1920 and Venice was in deep turmoil following World War I. The young Pilla brothers, with their distillery and expertise in the art of making liquors, seized this unique moment and used it to their advantage.
Venice was at a turning point: people were just beginning to venture out again and rediscover life’s pleasures. The act of enjoying an aperitif with friends spread throughout the city and Select Aperitivo assumed the starring role in this new cocktail scene.
Almost a century has passed, but today, Select Aperitivo is still known as the true icon of the Venetian aperitif: a unique bitter that is served at the iconic bars in the Lagoon and by bartenders around the world, eager to offer something unique and special.
Macerated individually and carefully processed with artisanal mastery, they give the product its intense bitter note.
Macerated and extracted, their fresh, resinous notes add a strong structure and balance to the bitter, making it perfect for mixing.
The botanicals are slowly macerated in a mixture of water and alcohol.
The mixture is boiled to extract the true essence of the botanicals.
The juniper berries are individually macerated in a pot still, using artisanal methods to extract the most aromatic part of the fruit.
Intense and brilliant ruby red color with orange highlights.
Strong and tonic primary notes, with citrus fruit and essential oils, combined with fresh, balsamic, resinous eucalyptus and menthol notes. Secondary notes are complex and herbaceous.
At first taste, Select Aperitivo is complex and intense with bitter notes from roots and barks. Spicy and tropical notes come through at mid-palate, which complement the citrus notes. The finish is pleasant and persistent with fresh and rich notes coming from the citrus fruits and essential oils.
Select Aperitivo is the essential ingredient for making the Original Venetian Spritz.
According to Venetian tradition, the recipe was garnished with a large green olive to create the perfect blend of balance and flavor. It is still served this way today.
Pour Select, prosecco, and soda water into a wine glass over ice. Top with a large, green olive, sit back and savor in excellent company.
