Roberta Mariani, known as one of the most talented Italian bartenders in the world, is the new MARTINI® Global Brand Ambassador. Born in Latina, Italy, she has inherited passion for Italian classic cocktails.
Her career began in 2005 in a classic cafe in her native town near Rome, and after travelling and working throughout the Italian peninsula, she moved to London in 2012 where she started working at Purple Bar in the Sanderson Hotel.
While in London, Roberta developed her passion for mixology and botanicals due to a natural curiosity about the science behind cocktails and flavours. Mastering that specialty that led her to the Zetter Townhouse in 2013 where she worked alongside with Tony Conigliaro and the Drink Factory team.
In November 2014, Roberta opened the Bar Termini, the quintessential Italian aperitivo and digestivo bar in London. She rapidly became one of the most renowned mixologists in Italian cocktail culture.
Roberta now shares her knowledge and passion around the world with all things relating to the iconic MARTINI brand and its vermouths, bitters and classic cocktails.
Roberta's favourite MARTINI® cocktail is a Negroni, the king of Italian aperitivo!
