The Mixologist

The heritage of traditional Italian mixology

Patrick Pistolesi

NIO Cocktails Head Mixologist Patrick Pistolesi has been a driving force behind the recent evolution of cocktail culture in Rome. After 21 years of bartending, he’s judged and won international competitions. Consulted all over the world. Opened Italy’s first ever gin bar. And been brand ambassador for well-known spirit brands. Today Patrick puts his art into practice at his very own cocktail bar Drink Kong in the Italian capital.
Now he’s excited to be shaking up cocktail culture even further with professional quality, ready-to enjoy cocktails delivered through your letterbox. Patrick has personally curated the NIO drinks menu, selecting and mixing a range of classics as well as his own signature house cocktails. Whatever your taste, Patrick has made sure there is a choice for any and every occasion, from light aperitif to rich after-dinner drink. All are beautifully balanced. Hand-mixed in Italy. And share the same uncompromising commitment to fine drinking: premium quality ingredients with no preservatives. No additives. No artificial flavourings. And nothing else that doesn’t belong in a great cocktail. Now everyone can enjoy the genuine taste experience of an Italian cocktail bar in their own home. Quickly. Convivially. Effortlessly. “For the NIO range of premium ready-to-pour cocktails, I wanted to replicate the fine-drinking taste experience of a true Italian cocktail bar. I have selected the highest quality spirits and liquids with no need for preservatives, colouring or added flavourings. I hope you enjoy them – and enjoy yourself. Salute.” Patrick Pistolesi, Head Mixologist
