Negroni Week

Negroni Week is an annual celebration of the iconic Negroni, presented by Imbibe Magazine and Campari, to raise money for charitable causes around the world.

Since its inception in 2013, participating Negroni Week venues have collectively raised nearly $3 million. In the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic, bars and bartenders have been affected particularly hard, and after years of helping others, now they are the ones that need support.

This Negroni Week (September 13-29), Campari Australia is inspiring bartenders to put their creative spin on the Negroni. Find participating venues near you to try a Negroni Twist and support your favourite bars and their nominated charitable cause.

History of the Negroni

Everything began in 1919, when Count Camillo Negroni visited his favourite bar in Florence, Caffé Casoni.

Inspired by a recent trip to Britain, he asked bartender Fosco Scarselli for an Americano made with a splash of Gin instead of soda water. Scarselli then added an orange wedge rather than the usual lemon twist, and the rest is history.

Over the last 100 years, the Negroni has stood the test of time achieving its status as a ‘classic cocktail’.
