Matteo Consolati Casali

Matteo Consolati was born in Lucca in 1987. At the age of 17 he starts going to an Irish pub, and falls in love with that pub.

After several years, between a beer, a cocktail and several chattering, he moves to the other side of the counter almost for fun, where he begins his journey.

At first, the passion for beer leads him to study all types of beer, and more than anything else to drink them. The same happens for spirits but with the latter it is quite different.

A world opens up to him: that of mixing. A world that fascinates him so much that it leads him to attend different courses and always experiment with new cocktails as a little chemist.

Each cocktail has its own story, each story has its own cocktail.

What cocktail would you take to a desert island?

Gin tonic

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

I'd have Arthur Guinness taste my Dublin sour

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

First day of work behind a counter, a customer asks me a crushed Cuba.
Having no idea what it was I ask my superior, to which he tells me: crush lime and brown sugar, add dark rum, cola and shaker.
Needless to tell you how it ended… there was a big bang!
