When creating Cadello, we put ourselves in a metaphorical time machine and went back to the peak of the Venetian Empire. When creating Cadello, we asked ourselves, “What spirit would these wealthy Venetian merchants have created to serve at their masked balls?” The Venetian mask, with all its mystery, allure and hints of scandalous fantasy, represents all that is Cadello…
Il Conte is our (extremely unique) variation of a 'negroni'. After 15-20 seconds, Campari gives way to subtle hints of coconut with just a touch of smoke from the Mezcal. Cadello brings balanced accents of chocolate and vanilla. Il Conte was created by our own @robert_deiana_cadello88 and it is truly special. 25ml Cadello 25ml Campari 20ml Koko Kanu Run 10ml Vida Mezcal Stir over ice for 30 seconds. Strain into a coupette glass. Serve neat and garnish with lemon zest.
A very special thanks to Christian Lazzaro (@chris_l78) for this amazing photograph of Ponte di Rialto. Many beautiful photographs have been taken of the Ponte di Rialto over the years; however, this is the nicest one we have seen.
Our master distillers in Trentino, Italy infuse, distil and then blend a unique combination of ingredients from Italy and places along the Old Silk Route. In the logo of Cadello, our unique "Ferro Dragon" has the head of a dragon (representing China) and the tail of a 'ferro' from the front of the Venetian gondola (representing Italy).

There are various stories around how the Espresso Martini came to be… . And there are many people who claim to have invented it… . We subscribe to the story that it was invented by legendary British bartender Dick Badsell (who initially referred to it as Vodka Espresso, and then later ‘Pharmaceutical Stimulant’ – great name). Our own espresso martini is the Cadellotini (see recipe below). CADELLOTINI 30ml Cadello 20ml Vodka 20ml Franglico 5ml Cherry Liqueur 1 Espresso
In Venice, the word casa is abbreviated to ca', particularly when used to name a noble family's palace. We wanted to name our new spirit after a Venetian palace in which grand masked balls would have been held during the peek of the Venetian Empire. Hence... Ca' Dello... Cadello
Yesterday was La Fenice’s 230th birthday. Since being named ‘La Fenice’, the theatre has burned down twice more and, like The Phoenix, it has been rebuilt twice more. The story of La Fenice is an inspiration to persist… and to restore, recover and resuscitate.
Why aren’t we posting a cocktail on World Cocktail Day…?? (Today is, of course, World Cocktail Day) However, today is also the birthday of George Braque… Together, George Braque and Pablo Picasso created the revolutionary art form of cubism around 1907-1908. In honour of World Cocktail Day, we hope that every one of you are deconstructing traditional norms to create revolutionary libations today.

Cadello is like a cocktail in a glass. The drinking experience takes your mouth on a journey… In the first 20-30 seconds, you get a bit of star anise and mint… After 30 seconds, star anise and mint give way to coffee, chocolate, vanilla, a bit of hazelnut and caramel… Finally, after 50 or 60 seconds, you get a warm combination of all these ingredients coming together in a very smooth, but complex finish. https://www.cadello.com/

Monday marked the first stage of the U.K.’s re-opening and re-awakening. We hope that those of you in the U.K. are able to spread your wings and let your minds and imaginations run free with creative ways to live out months of pent-up wants, desires and thirsts… We hope that everyone in countries still affected by lockdown (or high levels of COVID) soon experience a return to normality, health, safety, happiness and abundance…
Simple. Elegant. Complex. Very smooth… ITALIAN NAIL (Cadello Nail) 20ml Cadello 25ml Lagavulin (or your favourite Islay Scotch) Ice
Happy Birthday Venice! Buon Compleanno Venezia! 25 March 2021 was the 1,600th birthday of Venice. Venice was reportedly formed on 25 March 421 by mainland Italians who escaped from invading Lombard hordes and settled onto marshy, outcrop islands in the lagoon. Buon Compleanno Venezia!
