Discover Anise presented by Distilleria Varnelli

Anise has a long, rich history yet much remains to be discovered. Some consider Anise invariably sweet; others imagine it as a somewhat old-fashioned (if iconic) touchstone of the traditional Mediterranean. Both of these descriptions are too simple: it is time to explore the modernity and versatility of Anise.

Distilleria Varnelli is proud to offer a unique tasting experience, exploring Anise’s full range of possibilities, through an interactive Tasting Room starring the internationally decorated Varnelli Anice Secco, Gold Medal awarded in 1950 as “the best Italian dry anise.”

Your hostess, Orietta Maria Varnelli, along with Robin Goodfellow from the Toronto's hot Bar Raval will demonstrate the flexibility of Varnelli Anice Secco through neat tasting, as the key ingredient in an authentic Caffè Corretto and in innovative cocktails and unconventional pairings.

This Tasting Room promises to be informative, delicious, and fun – look for a surprising experience by Brooklyn’s L’Albero dei Gelati. Come and enjoy a taste of Italian sophistication and see why Varnelli Anice Secco is uniquely different.
