Discovering the Venetian Mixology: cocktails and local excellence
Although Venice is known for its famous bacari and typical taverns, in today’s article we introduce you to another fascinating feature of the Venetian panorama: good drinks.
We are referring to the elegant cocktail bars where you can enjoy your evening not only tasting the creations of experienced bartenders, but also discovering some of the local specialties: products and ingredients of the highest quality that, in recent years, have gained well-deserved success, further elevating the sophistication of the Venetian Mixology.
The Venice Cocktail Week
The Savor Bar is undoubtedly one of the most suggestive locations where you can taste high-quality cocktails, surrounded by the elegant and sophisticated atmosphere of our hotel. In 2022 Savor Bar Restaurant & Garden was selected, together with 31 other local cocktail bars, to participate in the second edition of the Venice Cocktail Week.
A week of rendezvous in Venice’s best Cocktail Bars to enhance high-quality mixing and spread the culture of conscious and responsible drinking. Our goal was to tell the story of the territory through our cocktails and the wise use of wines, distillates and aromas.
Local excellence: Sospiri Botaniche Veneziane
A local excellence we are proud of is Gin dei Sospiri: the first Gin in Venice to be produced with Salicornia and Sant’Erasmo botanicals, which give the distillate a soft taste and herbaceous hints combined with a Mediterranean fragrance.
It’s worth highlighting that the island of Sant’Erasmo is also called “Venice’s kitchen garden”. The fertile nature of its land has always favored abundant crops of fruit, vegetables and aromatic plants. You might have heard of its artichokes indeed.
Gin dei Sospiri is signed by Sospiri Botaniche Veneziane, which aims to tell the true essence of Venice through its raw materials. The ultimate goal is the exaltation of the Venetian territory in all its aspects: a real journey through aromas, flavors and fragrances. Sustainability also plays a key role in the production of this gin: the bottle label is completely recyclable, made of cotton paper and decorated with ink obtained from the same botanicals of Sant’Erasmo.
It is no coincidence that in 2022 Gin dei Sospiri was awarded the golden ampoule as the best Veneto distillate. Pretty impressive!
The World Bartender Day
On the occasion of World Bartender Day (February 24), the Savor Bar is offering a selection of original cocktails created for the event and available exclusively from February 24 to 26.
Gin dei Sospiri will be the protagonist of one of the cocktails: what better occasion to taste it? We look forward to seeing you on February 24 starting at 6pm. Join the live creation of our exclusive cocktails, including an introduction to the products and to our bartenders for the evening.
