Cynar is an artichoke based bitter. Its distinctive flavour is enriched an infusion of 13 herbs and plants, making it a completely natural drink, rich in scents and a unique taste . It perfectly conserves all the health properties of the ingredients used in its preparation. Only moderately alcoholic (16.5%) Cynar is a modern and versatile drink that is always welcome.
Cynar is a perfect bitter for an after-dinner digestive and can be enjoyed straight or with ice. For a younger flavour, it can be mixed with tonic water or with a splash of soda water, and softened with a slice of orange.
Cynar was launched on the market in 1952, and its history is closely tied to its successful television advertisements interpreted in the 1960s by Ernesto Calindri. In 1995 Cynar became part of Gruppo Campari that has grown the brand into a "digestif apertif" and a market leader in the "after dinner bitter" category.
It is produced using white grape Must, acetified and aged in oak barrels to get its typical amber colour. Its most striking feature is that it does not alter the colour of dishes but it adds a fruity and mildly acid aroma and flavour (excellent to replace wine vinegar).
