A pièce de résistance FAM trip with Bacardi Brand Homes – Casa Martini and Terrazza Martini! This summer we organised another successful UK FAM trip on behalf of our client Bacardi Brand Homes, out to the newly launched Terrazza Martini in Milan and also Casa Martini in Turin. The group consisted of luxury fashion and event concierge companies; including Aquazzura and Ten Group, to showcase both brand homes event and meeting space ahead of Fashion Week and CME days. Bringing the 150 years of history to life at the Martini Brand Homes in Italy.
First stop was the Terrazza Martini, which runs across three floors including penthouse terrace overlooking the Duomo. Our group spent their first night in Milan sipping Martini prosecco and creative cocktails whipped up by Casa Martini’s experienced mixologists- all while the sun set over the Piazza del Duomo. This was followed by a tour of Terrazza Martini’s many corporate and event offerings housed on the beautiful three floors including a meeting room with breakout space, press conference area and a large terrace for social events.
Later that evening our group dined in a private space at the Dolce & Gabbana restaurant in the Martini Bar & Bistro, tasting more of Martini’s cleverly curated cocktails alongside a five-course meal. The Bistro pays homage to the Milanese restaurants of the early 50’s in an opulent and inviting setting. After a busy day exploring Terrazza Martini, we were lucky enough to stay at The Rosa Grand Milano- part of The Star Hotel Collection – a luxury hotel fringing the Piazza del Duomo, in the heart of Milan’s centre that perfectly captures Milan’s mix of the innovative and the inspiring.
The following morning was an early start to Turin to visit Casa Martini. Located in the Pessione di Chieri, Martini and Rossi’s historic premises are exceptional settings for private events, conference meetings, team building sessions and social occasions. Within the walls of the fabulously impressive architecture lives the production site of Martini and the family home of Luigi Rossi, which still echoes the values and inspiration of Martini’s founders. During the master class, the group had the opportunity to create their own unique cocktails under the instruction of one of Casa Martini’s mixologists and a perfect day ended with a tour of the wine museum and Mondo Martini gallery.
