Tasting Notes and Technical Description:

Visual Appearance:

Campari commands immediate attention with its strikingly vivid red hue, a coloration derived historically from a natural dye, which in modern formulations has been replaced with food-safe colorants. The liquid holds a medium body, evoking an elegant dance of light as it sways in the glass.

Nose (Aroma):

The aromatic profile is an intricate tapestry of botanicals. Initial olfactory cues range from bitter orange and cherry to a complex medley of herbs and spices. Intertwined are whispers of clove, cinnamon, and a faint, yet discernible, root-like earthiness reminiscent of gentian and rhubarb.


The initial palate is greeted with an assertive bitterness that is at once invigorating and deeply satisfying. This is soon balanced by a semi-sweet undertone of fruitiness characterized by bitter orange and a hint of red berries. As one delves deeper, herbal complexities begin to unfold—touches of rosemary, thyme, and a mosaic of exotic spices serve as an intricate backdrop.


The finish is enduring, leaving a pleasant bitterness that lingers, urging the palate for another sip. There is a resurgence of its herbal complexities, leaving a final impression that is bittersweet, layered, and elegantly complex.

At Third Base Market & Spirits, we are elated to offer Campari, an aperitif that stands as a tribute to the art of Italian aperitivo culture. Perfect for a variety of cocktails, including the Negroni or the Americano, or simply enjoyed over ice with a slice of orange, Campari is a versatile spirit that never ceases to engage and surprise. It is, in essence, a lesson in balance, a symphony of flavors that takes you on a journey through its rich history with every sip. This timeless classic beckons for exploration, promising an experience that is both refreshingly contemporary and deeply rooted in tradition.

Campari tastes like Italy!

Every sip here in the U.S. takes me back to a shaded terrace on the Mediterranean coast of Italy. It's a wonderfully complex combo of bitter/herbal/sweet (yes) flavors and while it's AMAZING by itself on the rocks with a bit of orange peel, it's also the critical ingredient in MANY great cocktails. Gin, Rye, Tequila, Rum - they all step up to the task. You can't go wrong with Campari and it needs to be in your bar - period.
