Cynar

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.

Invented by Italian businessman Angelo Dalle Molle, Cynar quickly became popular through their slogan "control il logorio della vita moderna" (against the stress of modern life). Since 1995, it has been a part of Grupo Campari.

To keep up with its popular demand, production happens at one (or several) of Gruppo Campari's eighteen plants worldwide.
