Celebrate 100 years of the Negroni

Created in 1919 in Florence, 100 years have passed since the creation of one of the world’s most iconic cocktails: The Negroni.

To celebrate this milestone, Campari Australia is activating a fully integrated marketing programme that runs until July 2019.

Throughout May and June there will be a series of Negroni activations in some of Australia’s best and most creative on-premise venues, culminating in this year’s Negroni Week from the 24 – 30th of June.

During the activation period there will be an extensive media campaign to raise awareness of the Negroni centenary that will help drive foot traffic to participating venues via trade media, PR, digital and social media.

Join us in wishing the Negroni a very Happy Birthday!
