Affini’s “Millenium” is a new experience between signature cocktails and world icons.

Twelve limited number drinks and as many personalized glasses to collect to pay homage to the protagonists of the first decade of 2000

A project to tell an important decade, full of characters – icons, new lifestyles and new fashions.

A real experience, to react to the current crisis due to Covid-19 and the new restrictions, giving through mixed flavors the desire to play with the imagination and rediscover it in a key drink of men and women who have made history.

It starts with these assumptions “Millenium”, the new original idea of ​​the Affini brand dedicated to teenagers of the first decade of the 2000s and, more generally, to all lovers of responsible and quality drinking.

A real journey through time marked by twelve drinks, totally new and creative and inspired, and then revisited, by classic cocktails.

Any proposal “Millennium” it will be limited to 100 and will be accompanied by as many personalized glasses that the one hundred lucky and timely consumers will be able to take home as a souvenir and eventual collection.

Millenium cocktails will be launched every two weeks.

Given the current restrictions imposed by the government, they could be sorted in formula delivery together with the personalized glass.

To “open the dance” was the cocktail “Obama – Mama”, in homage to former US President Barack Obama, one of the undisputed protagonists of the beginning of the century, but also to the drink Bahama Mama made famous in the TV series Scrubs.

Obama Mama is an exotic mix of rum, banana and cocoa, a tribute to President Obama’s Hawaiian origins, to be enjoyed on Sunday afternoon, imagining the sea, at the thought “Yes, weekend!”.

It will then be the turn of other cult characters in their fields of expertise, from Eminem to Kobe Bryant, from Dawson’s Creek to Gladiator just to name a few.

Directing the Millennium project and behind the counter, between shaker and metal pour, there is Michele Marzella, head Barman of the Affini Group, in the company of his colleague Martin Marchetti, while the graphics of the glasses were created by the Turin designer Francesco Lo Pomo.

So explains the bartender Michele:

“The Millennium Project started months ago from a simple idea and developed through an intense and stimulating preparation work.

We have carefully thought about how to link a peculiarity, or the assonance of the name, of a famous character, film or song from the zero years. We liked the idea of ​​creating a bond with our customers, of being able to create objects for them. This is why we contacted Francesco Lo Pomo, carefully studied the graphics and thought of adding them to a series of personalized glasses, like when I was a child I bought Nutella to make it a “collection”.

Our goal is that the customer plays with us and can also use our glasses at home, perhaps assigning this or that character to the desired guest. “

Behind and behind all this there is Davide Pinto, owner of the Affini group and an active mind in this world of cocktails and “Torinesità”:

“With Millennium we want to offer our customers a totally new experience.

We want to accompany them on a journey through time and space, to discover our past and new flavors.

Millennium cocktails go beyond the classic Affini drink list and are limited in number, as are their glasses.

Like all beautiful things, Millennium will have a beginning and an end: it was born to excite, to create new stimuli and give intense flavors. It was born to ideally include and embrace all our friends and customers through an exclusive and imaginative project.

Because even in this period it is not easy to be Affine, but it is damn good “.
