Following  two  years  of  international  success,  2015  marks  the  official  arrival  of  Negroni Week to Australia.

Negroni Week launched in 2013 as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charitable causes around the world. From 2013 to 2014, Negroni Week grew from more than 100 participating bars to more than 1,300 participating bars around the world and more than $120,000 raised for charities.

Running from 1st through to 7th June, 2015, Negroni Week will see bars and restaurants across Australia take part by taking $1 from each Negroni cocktail or Negroni inspired product sold and donating the funds to a charity of their choice.

Tapping into the rise in popularity and demand of the classic Negroni -­‐   an iconic mix of gin, Campari and sweet red vermouth created by chance in Florence around 1920 by Count Camillo  Negroni,  the  Negroni  is  one  of  many  cocktails  which  has  benefitted  from  the returning trend of classic cocktails, with many venues also creating their own signature take on this cult classic.
