Campari is produced by the Davide Campari-Milano S.A, in Sesto San Giovanni in Italy.
The bitter sweet aperitif has been produced in the province of Milan for 150 years, following a secret recipe. It is flavoured with 68 different fruits, herbs and spices, including cinchona, rhubarb, ginseng, and the peel of bitter oranges and aromatic herbs, which are combined and macerated in a blend of pure water and spirit for a couple of weeks. The resulting mixture is sweetened with sugar and tinted red.
With its vibrant red colour, intense aroma and inspiring flavour, Campari has been a symbol of intrigue and pleasure for 150 years.

In 1862, the original recipe was invented in Novara by Gaspare Campari, who made a new liqueur, named Rosa Campari, in the basement of his Milanese bar. It is an infusion of bitter and aromatic herbs, plants and fruit in alcohol and water.
In 1904 Campari's first production plant was opened in Sesto San Giovanni, near Milan, and the company began to export the brand overseas. It was the beginning of a success story that today still has no sign of stopping.
Many have tried to guess the number of ingredients used. Some say 20, others list 60. Today, the exact number is only known by the very few people in charge of the production process.
The unique recipe of Campari hasn't changed since the beginning and still remains a closely guarded secret. This Italian aperitif has become the best-selling bitter in the world.
Enjoy Campari pure on ice, or with soda. We also recommend to use it as the main ingredient in a cocktail.
