CAMPARI is the world’s most famous bitter aperitif. Vibrant red, herbaceous and deliciously bitter, Campari is the essential ingredient to some of the world’s most classic and iconic drinks – including the Negroni, which celebrates its 100th birthday this year. The story began back in 1919 when Count Camillo Negroni entered a bar in Florence and asked for an Americano with gin instead of soda water, inspired by a recent trip to Britain. The rest is history, and over the last 100 years, the Negroni has stood the test of time achieving cult status as a ‘classic cocktail’ with Tatler naming the Negroni one of the hottest cocktails of 2018. Campari has also been named the most popular spirit brand in the most influential bartenders’ cocktails in London.
Aperol was created in 1919 in Padua by the Barbieri brothers, specialists in liqueur production since 1880. Aperol was launched behind the revolutionary idea of creating the lightest of liqueurs: an aperitif with an alcohol content of only 11%. The serve is made by mixing Aperol with Prosecco and a splash of soda in a wine glass full of ice and a slice of orange. Light, sparkling and refreshing, it’s the ideal drink for starting the evening and for any social occasion. It can be enjoyed before dinner as a true Italian aperitif, as a lighter option at an after-work get-together with colleagues or friends or combined with food. Aperol Spritz has fast become a cult drink outside of Italy, extending to neighbouring countries and even across the world.
Inspired by the effortless glamour and carefree spirit of the Italian Riviera in the 1960s, O’ndina is a super-premium Italian gin that embodies the spirit of La Dolce Vita; a refreshing and herbaceous gin that transports you to the sophisticated and vivacious Italian Riviera. Crafted with 19 hand-selected Italian botanicals using only the finest ingredients – including fresh basil from Liguria (of the Grande Verde di Genova variety, famed for its sweetness and vibrant colour) and citrus from southern Italy, it’s refreshing and herbaceous flavour creates the perfect Mediterranean Gin & Tonic and an exquisite all-Italian Negroni.
Ichnusa has cult status among Sardinia fans: it is brewed locally in Sardinia and is the island’s leading beer. This authentic golden lager has a hoppy but moderately bitter taste and pairs perfectly with Italian cuisine. The name "Ichnusa" comes from the Greek word for Sardinia, Ichnôussa. The brewery opened in 1912 in Cagliari and has dedicated to brewing on the island of Sardinia. Today, thanks to the acquisition of Heineken, you can find it and taste it in the best bars and shops worldwide.
