70cl | 16.5% ABV | Italy

First released in the early 1950's, Cynar is an Italian aperitif, named after the artichoke (Cynara Scolymus) which is the main flavouring ingredient.

Ripe tomatoes and bittersweet stewed vegetables may not sound like the aperitif of your dreams, but it works here as the artichoke is combined with caramel-like sweetness.
