William Perbellini Appointed Property Mixologist At Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas

Hong Kong, 25 September 2017 – Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas has a new Property Mixologist, William Perbellini. Born and raised in Verona, Italy, William developed an interest in culinary creations when helping at his uncle’s bakery near Milan as a fourteen-year-old, but it was four years later when he first stepped behind a bar in his home town that he discovered his true passion, mixology. William later graduated from culinary high school as a Gourmet Bartender and nurtured his calling by moving to Venice to hone his craft among some of the best in the business.

While working at the prestigious Hotel Cipriani as a bartender, William met Italian fashion designer, Valentino Garavani, who quickly noticed his skills and work ethic and offered him an opportunity to butler at his private properties and yachts. This enabled William to travel the world and meet the founding members of Bar Toscana in Brentwood, California, which he joined when it opened in 2010, before his move to Las Vegas.

A member of the prestigious Spirits of Italy team that represents Italian liquor brands and competes annually at the Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, William considers ongoing professional development vital. Bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience with him to Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, he will undoubtedly share his enthusiasm for his craft with the Mandarin Bar team.

The Pearbellini is William’s signature cocktail and the first official drink on Mandarin Bar’s menu. Showcasing his expertise in combining unforgettable flavors this thirst-quencher includes vodka mixed with elderflower liqueur, lime, pear, chamomile and champagne. He draws inspiration for his cocktails from gardening, traveling, colors and tea, and introduces these elements into each of his creations.
