Campari announces the 11th edition of Negroni Week from Sept 18- 24

The 11th annual #NegroniWeek takes place from Sept 18-24 all over Bangkok, celebrating the bonds between Campari, the iconic Negroni and the world of mixology. 

Campari, Italy’s iconic red apéritif, Imbibe Magazine and charitable partner Slow Food come together for Negroni Week to support the mission to foster a more equitable and sustainable world of food and beverage through a series of local events at bars, restaurants and retailers around the world. Since the cocktail’s creation in 1919, Campari has been the red heart of the Negroni, a cocktail which showcases the unique flavour profile of Campari and is now one of the most-loved cocktails globally.

There’s no Negroni without Campari, just like there’s no bar industry without bartenders. To celebrate this bond, the Slow Food Negroni Week Fund gives direct support to those in hospitality. 

In the 11th edition of Negroni Week in Thailand, cocktail enthusiasts and Negroni lovers will get the chance to enjoy varieties of the cocktail, from the classic staples to innovative, inspiring recipes, at leading bars and restaurants, as well as a boozy brunch, an idyllic dinner cruise with scrumptious food and drinks and a fun bar hop, and at the same time celebrate the art and craft of cocktail making of the bartenders, and give back to society through the Foundation for the Deaf under the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty the Queen.
