Tommy Colonna, Benni From Gambrinus

The presentation event of the new Prohibito Express begins with Prohibito Express: a journey from Puglia to Paris via Venice, in the fascinating setting of Palazzo Experimental, c/o Fondamenta Zattere Al Ponte Lungo, 1411.
The Made in Puglia aperitif and dinner saw the Puglian barmen Tommy Colonna, owner of Benni from Gambrinus (Gravina) and Diego Melorio, founder of Quanto Basta (Lecce), delighting the guests with a Prohibito signature drink list and a special menu.

In the charming atmosphere of Palazzo Experimental, the event is followed by an afterdinner with Samuele Ambrosi Lorenzo Di Cola, Bar Manager at Palazzo Experimental, and a Paris-inspired drink selection specially crafted with Scortese Organic Pure Tonic .

SCORTESE Organic Pure Tonic is the result of a research carried out by our bartenders in the field of gin. Its botanicals endow this product with a strong, complex personality: thyme, lemon, natural quinine essence, lemongrass and cardamom are the protagonists of its intense bitterness; whereas green tea provides balance and softness to its palate.
