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.
Cynar is an artichoke based bitter. Its distinctive flavor is enriched from 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 flavor, it can be mixed with tonic water or with a splash of soda water, and softened with a slice of orange.
