What sommelier is busy making his own signature vermouth, barrel aging Vesper Martinis, and shaking up  fruit martinis?  Our guest today, Vittorio Gentile, is one sommelier who thinks like a mixologist which makes drinking at Theo Randall at the InterContinental so exciting.

Vittorio hails from Southern Italy with a degree in Economics, but he was quickly seduced by hospitality world. Upon moving to London, he worked his way up to Head Sommelier for Theo Randall at the InterContinental in just three years.

One of his job requirements was over seeing not just the wines, but the entire beverage menu for the restaurant. That’s where his inherent creativity with spirits kicked in and now he is pairing food with cocktails as well as wine.
