ITALICUS Rosolio di Bergamotto and SAVOIA Americano - the modern Aperitivo brands founded by Italian Spirits innovator, Giuseppe Gallo - have announced a lineup of interactive cocktail events taking place as part of this year’s London Cocktail Week festivities, which will run from October 13th - 23rd.
Kicking off at The Zetter Townhouse on Thursday, October 13th with a takeover hosted by Giacomo Giannotti of Barcelona’s Paradiso (recently named #1 World’s Best Bar), the brands’ London Cocktail Week events will celebrate their affection for the world’s bar trade while bringing their passion for art and aperitivo to life.
On Wednesday, October 19th and Thursday, October 20th, ITALICUS and SAVOIA will host a special tour of some of the city’s most celebrated cocktail bars. Guests will travel from West to East to enjoy sophisticated aperitivo cocktails. Titled Aperitivo Pop Art, the experience combines the popular notion of the pop up, but with artistic and aperitivo culture inspiration; pop up art is expressed in this tour in both liquid and visual form via the striking creative cocktails at each stop.
To close the month’s cocktail celebrations, on Saturday, October 22nd, ITALICUS and SAVOIA invite guests to dive deep into the aperitivo category and enjoy delicious stuzzichini with a masterclass and tasting of each brand at La Scuola at Eataly.
A recap of details for each of these events is copied below:
