Select is an original aperitif created in Venice, Italy, in 1920. It is made with 30 selected botanicals including juniper berries and rhubarb roots that give the Select its complex and diverse taste.
Every region of Italy has its most preferred aperitif. In Venice it’s Select. This drink was created in 1920 in Castello district of Venice, at Pilla Distilleries, the heart of Venice liquor production.
Since the 1920s and to our days Select is still the most popular aperitif in the Venice region.
Select is a complex aperitif, quite close to Aperol and Campari, but more diverse, with pleasant notes of vanilla and bitter but quite soft finish.
Select traditionally served before food “to open the appetite for flavors, experiences, moments and ideas”, and, according to the old Venezian tradition, the drink is garnished with a green olive to complement its taste and balance the flavours.
This aperitif is made from 30 selected botanicals blended and distilled according to the original recipe for 9 months. The botanicals are perfectly balanced and create a unique bitter and fruity taste. Expect the notes of juniper berries and rhubarb root.
