Lots of drinks have an interesting history, and the Bellini is certainly one of the most interesting. A mix of Prosecco and peaches, it was invented in Venice in the chaos of post-War Italy. Giuseppe Cipriani was the inventor, owner of Harry’s Bar, a favourite watering hole for Ernest Hemingway, Humphrey Bogart and many other literary and cinematic celebrities. “Bellini” wasn’t just some random nice-sounding name, either – Cipriani picked it because the drink’s pink colour reminded him of a painting by the Renaissance artist Giovanni Bellini.

This alcohol-free Bellini promises “a fusion of dry Prosecco essence, aromatic bitters, and rich peach notes”. We have to say that that dryness and bitterness was what our taste-testers thought was missing. This drink was just a bit too sweet for us. If you like sweet fruit drinks, you may disagree. As always, you’ll have to try it for yourself to make your mind up.

You can order it direct from Sipling, either on its own or as part of a mixed tasting pack of six different drinks. Other sales outlets are sure to be on the way.
