Campari, gin, and vermouth: The Negroni is one of the hallmarks of classic cocktails. Simple, elegant, and so lovely to drink, The Negroni has earned itself not only a spot in the pantheon of essential cocktails, but also a full week devoted to its celebration.
Negroni Week 2016 will take place from June 6 to 12 this year, and will find bars and restaurants around the world once again offering their take on the Negroni as a fundraiser for a favourite cause.
Started in 2013, Negroni Week has expanded in participation over the years, and in 2015 raised $321,000, nearly tripling the amount raised the previous year.
Have you tried our barrel-aged Negroni cocktail? We love this drink and are so proud to be participating in the upcoming #negroniweek that we’re unveiling a brand new #negroni cocktail.
