The classic Venetian spirit and part of the Mangrove portfolio, Select Aperitivo, has launched a global celebration of the world’s beloved sparkling cocktail – the spritz. Select Spritz Week is happening this month, in cities across the globe!
Here in the UK, the Select Spritz will be served up on sunny streets across the country, with activations taking place in London, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Margate, and Manchester. The spritz itself is a deliciously bitter drink, mixing Select Aperitivo with prosecco and soda for a refreshingly citrusy and spicy spritz – an authentic taste of Italy.
In London, you can sample the spritz yourself at Sophie’s Soho, where a pop-up event and dining space will bring live music during the day and DJ sets at night, from 26th May to 4th June. The ten-day event will also see Sophie’s serve up a ‘select-inspired’ menu to customers, bringing the tantalising taste of Italy to the streets of Soho.
Select Spritz will also be served up at the ‘Summer by the River’ Festival, a season-long installation along the banks of the Thames, that brings good food, drinks, theatre and entertainment to the London masses. And for those in the South looking for an escape from the city, Select Spritz Week will also be celebrated in beachy Margate, where a spritz-themed cocktail pop-up will quench the thirst of customers attending Dreamland seaside amusement park.
Elsewhere in the UK, you’ll find Select Spritz activations and Terrace takeovers in Edinburgh’s Gleneagles Townhouse, The Church in Birmingham, and Manchester’s DieCast – the city’s spectacular new, 5,000 capacity, open-plan event space and dining destination.
Before kicking off in the UK, Select Spritz Week debuted in its hometown of Venice, with the launch coinciding with the grand opening of the city’s Ca’Select, the aperitivo’s new venetian home. The space brought together artists and artisan producers from across the city to renovate the space and create an immersive experience that brought the brand to life for aperitivo lovers. The brand also partnered with Ocean Space for the launch, a Venetian charity that uses art to raise awareness and funds to protect the city’s vital canals and lagoons.
And the week-long celebration of spritz doesn’t end here in the UK – from there Select Spritz Week will hit Paris, New York, Miami, Mykonos, Hong Kong and Sydney, amongst other cities, bringing the vibrant Italian spritz to connoisseurs in all corners of the globe.
For the authentic taste of Venice this summer, be sure to celebrate Select Spritz Week in a city near you.
