barman Daniele Gentili

Daniele Gentili

After more than 25 years spent among shakers, cocktails and start up of new projects, Daniele Gentili is now considered one of the reference points of mixology in Italy.

A rich wealth of experience gained in Italy and abroad, achievements in some of the most important competitions in the world (World Class by DIAGEO, Nikka Perfect Serve, Diplomatico World Tour, Bacardi Legacy), have led him in this phase of his career create  his consulting company.

In 2020, a year of severe crisis for the entire industry, Daniele founded together with a group of professionals and entrepreneurs the association “Italian Hospitality Network – IHN”, to protect the sector. In the same year he joins the ORO Whiskey Bar project which, together with its founding partners Andrea Fofi and Pino Perrone, aims to be a new Roman benchmark for all lovers of pure and blended whiskey.

What cocktail would you take to a desert island?

A machete to open the coconuts and a bottle of Rum

Which character, either past or present, you would you like to drink one of your cocktails and which one?

A funny and bizarre anecdote that happened to you behind the counter

London, couple sitting at the counter, he is a little tipsy and gets up to go to the loo. After a few minutes he sits down and continues talking to his girlfriend. Only she wasn’t his girlfriend… wrong stool, wrong girl. In the meantime, I enjoyed the scene of his girlfriend who notices everything, gets up and knocks on the shoulder of her boyfriend. He asks me for the bill and takes the unfortunate away… I don’t dare imagine the discussion that followed.
