Ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix we’ve partnered up with luxury Italian cocktail project Sei Bellissimi.
Sei Bellissimi is a project with the mission to revisit six classic cocktails from the Italian tradition. The Bellini is the first release of this remastering, and we will be serving it exclusively to our Green Room Yacht guests at the Monaco Grand Prix.
The first Bellini was created in the summer of 1948 at Harry’s Bar in Venice by founder and bar owner Giuseppe Cipriani. Located just off the Grand Canal, the iconic bar was frequented by the likes of Humphrey Bogart, Truman Capote, and Ernest Hemingway.
The Bellini was born by combining Moscato sparkling wine from Piedmont with peaches puree from Trentino Alto Adige: a combination of flavours that will finely envelop your palate and your senses. With its fresh and delicate flavour and its well-balanced acidity Bellini goes with almost anything. It’s an ideal brunch drink, but it’s just as delicious served at a dinner party as a light drink guests can enjoy with appetizers or finger foods in a light aperitif. Bellini is also a certified vegan product.
The name of the drink was given because its unique pink colour, that reminds of the toga of a saint in a painting by 15th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini.
The Sei Bellissimi project aims to revive this tradition, with a touch of elegance and personalization.
The story behind the project stems from an idea by Giancarlo Mancino, an internationally renowned entrepreneur and bar consultant: his Hong Kong-based company leads many prestigious, globally recognized projects. With a vision that remains anchored to the cherished concepts of classicism and tradition, the mission of this project is to remaster six Italian sparkling cocktails, giving them new life, and combining the classic style with a touch of innovation and avant-garde.
The idea of remastering the classic sparkling cocktails of the Italian tradition did not stop only at the concept of reinterpretation. The vision was therefore to bring back to life a category of forgotten beverages. Simple and authentic, Sei Bellissimi fits perfectly in this new era of alcoholic beverages… Sparkling, ready to drink, low sugar, low abv, fruity, young, and yet classic, modern but with an aftertaste of yesteryear – all you need in the same bottle.
We can’t wait to serve this simply delicious new product to our guests and watch out for further announcements about exclusive event partnerships like Sei Bellissimi.
