This summer, Sartoria on Savile Row is launching a new menu of cocktails and cicchetti celebrating the Blu Mediterraneo fragrance collection of Acqua di Parma. The historic brand, an emblem of the most refined Italian lifestyle, makes the perfect partner for Francesco Mazzei’s quintessentially Italian bar and restaurant, located on one of London’s most timelessly stylish streets.
Acqua di Parma’s Blu Mediterraneo line is designed to evoke the charm of the Italian Mediterranean, the area of Italy that Calabrian Mazzei calls home. The new cocktails and cicchetti at Sartoria this summer highlight the Mediterranean side of both brands and explore the eternal link between scent and taste.
Mazzei has carefully crafted an Acqua di Parma menu that features three cicchetti and three aromatic cocktails, each inspired by an individual fragrance from the Blu Mediterraneo line. The Bergamotto di Calabria scent is realised in an aromatic and zesty cocktail that mixes Italicus bergamot liqueur with Sipsmith Gin, refreshing cucumber water, lemon and mint. Arancia di Capri sees Solerno blood orange liqueur combined with lavender and vanilla infused Aperol and topped with Prosecco. Lastly, inspired by the Chinotto di Liguria fragrance, the bittersweet Ligurian Negroni completes the cocktail trio and mixes rosemary infused Averna with Campari, topped with a dash of chinotto tonic water and garnished with a heady combination of dried orange and rosemary.
A trio of cicchetti has been designed to complement the exclusive cocktail collection, celebrating the scents and flavours of Panarea, Amalfi and Sicily. Polpette di vitello ed erbe fini (veal and fine herb meatballs) have been inspired by the key notes of basil and Italian lemon in Acqua di Parma’s Mirto di Panarea scent. Meanwhile, ‘Nduja roast scallops with fig compote highlight the sweet, spicy notes of fig and pink pepper in the Fico di Amalfi fragrance, and a summery vegetarian offering of Avocado tartare with flaked almonds, pays homage to Mandorlo di Sicilia and Sicily’s abundance of fresh green almonds.
Throughout June and July, Sartoria’s elegant Libare Bar and Terrace will be transformed into a summer retreat. The space has been decorated with orange trees and fragrant candles from the Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Home Collection for a heady combination that conjures the spirit of the Mediterranean in the heart of Mayfair and provides the perfect backdrop for enjoying Sartoria’s Blu Mediterraneo inspired cocktails and cicchetti.
