Francesco Cimaglia, Bootleg

26 years old, behind a counter for over 9, Francesco left Rome in 2015 for England, London. After three years at the hotel, he specialized in gin, in fact the hdr is the largest gin bar in London with over 500 labels.

He then moved to Paris in 2018, where he had the opportunity to take over Oscar Quagliarini in his wonderful perfume bar Herbarium. He returned to Rome in 2019 and settled at Bootleg, a suburban cocktail bar in north-east Rome where he shares his creations.
