Cynar is an artichoke based bitter liqueur (Cynar is latin for artichoke) known for its versatility and taste. It is pronounced "chee-NAR" and although its name is artichoke, this is not the prevalent flavour in this bitter amaro. Its distinctive flavour is enriched from an infusion of 13 herbs and plants, making it a completely natural drink, rich in aroma and unique in 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 found in many cocktail menus.
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 one of the main players in the “after dinner” category.
