Venice Postcards: Journey Through Cocktails

421 Laguna: The first stop on our tour of Venice drinks. This Venetian cocktail celebrates the origins of the city of Venice, said to be “founded” in 421 AD. We stand with Patrick looking out at the city skyline, standing just in front of iconic local distillery Pilla, crafting Select since 1920.  This cocktail showcases the pure profile of Select, a red liqueur and Italian bitter liqueur, a careful balance between citrus and spice, pairing Select with vermouth. Sip on ‘Laguna’, a perfect Venice cocktail.'.

1104 Arsenale: Our second stop on our tour of Venice cocktails. We travel with Patrick via gondola through the canals to catch a glimpse of the impressive structure of Arsenale. Inspired by the military giant, this Venetian cocktail draws upon strength and structure to craft a daring tipple of brandy, vermouth, and Select, a classic aperitivo liqueur.

1725 Le Calli Di Casanova:  Moving through the hidden passageways between the canals of Venice, we walk with Patrick to our third stop on our tour of our Venice drinks.  We listen to the fables told of politician, philosopher - and seducer - Giacomo Casanova. Patrick was inspired to craft a silky Venice cocktail with notes of chocolate and citrus.

2021 Cannaregio: The last stop on our tour: Standing within the vibrant streets of Cannaregio, the atmosphere conjures a feeling of celebration. Perhaps the most experimental cocktail of the tasting tour, this is Patrick’s wish for health, peace, and beauty in the future. Crafted with apple, citrus, and Select to make for a fun and vibrant finale in the form of a Venice drink.

As you sip and savour, journey through this ‘virtual tour’ of Venetian history and culture with Patrick by discovering the postcard detailed on the back of each cocktail. Enjoy these drinks in Venice from the comfort of your home.

Select Aperitivo: The Heart of Our Cocktails

Created in the Castello district of Venice at the Pilla Distilleries, Select is a red liqueur and Italian bitter liqueur crafted with 30 different botanicals. This aperitivo liqueur is a key ingredient in our Venetian cocktails, offering aromas of bitter orange and floral notes that carry through to its taste of strawberry, raspberry red fruits, orange citrus, and a hint of lavender. Select is fruitier than Campari with a lighter finish, making it the perfect feature for our drinks with aperitivo on our tour of Venice drinks.

Travel through the iconic city of Italy guided by Patrick Pistolesi, our head mixologist, with four Venetian  cocktails each with a unique story that make up our Postcards from Venice collection box.
