The legend of Venice between art, culture, history... and mixology. Patrick Pistolesi tells his journey to the ancient and intact heart of the Lagoon, where in 1920 a pillar of Venetian blending was born: the Select aperitif.
Patrick Pistolesi created 4 exclusive cocktails to celebrate as many places and moments of the ancient history of the Serenissima: the origins, the art of sailing, the ability to charm and the future. An iconic box signed only for NIO Cocktails and Select.
A genuine cocktail to celebrate the origins of Venice; a cocktail for a no-frills tasting of the irreplaceable ingredient for the authentic Venetian Spritz: Select. For this trip Patrick chose a Vermouth, a fortified wine.
Arsenale: the fortified heart of the city to which Patrick wanted to dedicate a bold, strong, intensely Italian cocktail. An aperitif of character, for daring palates and lovers of tradition.
Venice gives vibrations that meet an enveloping softness in this unique cocktail. This cocktail, deep in notes and mischievous in its combination, will pay homage to the art of bewitching and intriguing with the strength of Select and the sweetness of Creme de Cacao.
This cocktail is dedicated to the most cosmopolitan and contemporary district of Venice. This will be the most experimental cocktail that Pattrick dedicates to the Serenissima. A wish for a future of peace and beauty, a fragrant and unusual mix around Select.
