Created in 1920 in the Castello district of Venice at Pilla Distilleries. Select is made with a blend of 30 botanicals including juniper berries and rhubarb roots using a complex maceration, boiling, and distillation process to create a sophisticated but still approachable bittersweet aperitivo.

Select continues to be very popular in Venice and the surrounding Veneto area of northern Italy where it is traditionally used in the Spritz cocktail. Today Select is enjoyed in more than 50 countries as the main ingredient of the original Venetian Spritz.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 03/11/2019

Appearance:

Clear, crimson red.

Aroma:

Pleasant with hints of bitter orange, floral notes, tropical lush greenness, geraniums and expensive soap.

Taste:

Brilliantly balanced: rooty, red fruit, strawberry and raspberry flavours along with orange citrus and sweet lavender-like soapyness.

Aftertaste:

Bitter finish but not as bitter as Campari.

Overall:

Attractive berry fruit, orange citrus and sweet lavender-like floral notes. Select is fruitier than Campari and with a softer finish.
