A Brief History of Campari

1860 – Drink manufacturer Gaspare Campari experiments and creates the Campari recipe, still kept secret in the present day.

A few years later in 1867, Campari opened the Camparino bar, which still serves Campari recipes today.

In the 1920s the classic cocktails Negroni and Americano are invented, boosting Campari’s popularity

Between the 1940s and 1960s Campari establishes itself as a well-known brand, collaborating with famous artists on iconic marketing campaigns.

With the rise of Italian aperitif Happy Hour culture in the 1980s Campari was a must have item at drinks parties and social occasions.

Today, Campari is distributed in 190 countries in the world and is an industry leading brand.
