Alberto studied graphic design as a student, which, coupled with hospitality skills picked up in Spain, led him to become a curious and creative bartender. He has worked in various types of bars, taken part in a few cocktail competitions, and enjoys developing new recipes and playing with advanced techniques in order to get the best possible flavour from every cocktail's ingredient. Alberto says his life changed after becoming a boy scout! He is still one today.
