The storied city of Venice is famous for its beautiful canals and centuries old architecture. It is also here in 1920, on the small island of Murano, where Select Aperitivo was created. Internationally famous for its fine, hand-blown glassware, Venetians are much more interested in the local spirit they claim offers a perfect blend of sweetness and intensity. After all, they’ve been enjoying this spirit for nearly 100 years.
Select Aperitivo is traditionally served in a Spritz mixed with 3 parts Prosecco, 2 parts Select and 1 part soda. The drink is accompanied by an orange wheel and olives. Venetians refer to drinks like this as “Shadows,” as they are often consumed during a reprieve from the hot Venetian sun in restaurants and cafes that lie in the shade of the St. Mark Bell Tower.
Experience a true Venetian tradition that’s been around for nearly 100 years.Sku: 1793
