ANDIAMO RAISE A TOAST TO THE TIMELESS BOND OF CAMPARI AND NEGRONI WEEK 2023, THAILAND.


NEGRONI WEEK 2023, THAILAND / THE EPICUREANIST

The 11th annual #NegroniWeek takes place between 18th – 24th September 2023, celebrating the bonds between Campari, the iconic Negroni and the world of mixology, with fundraising proceeds going to charitable partner Slow Food



Thailand, Campari, Italy’s iconic red Apéritif, and Imbibe Magazine come together for Negroni Week once again to support Slow Food’s 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. With the unbreakable bond between bartenders and the world of mixology, the global charity initiative puts the power of fundraising in the hands of the industry, growing over the past decade to attract thousands of partners in over 80 markets, and raising over $4 million for global causes. 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. The Negroni’s rise in popularity wouldn’t have been possible without the limitless skill of bartenders sharing their talent with the world; these connections will be at the core of Negroni Week 2023 activations, strengthening the mutual appreciation between Campari, global bartenders and Negroni enthusiasts worldwide.



Slow Food, NEGRONI WEEK 2023, THAILAND / THE EPICUREANIST

Slow Food, the official giving partner for the second year, is a global movement of local communities and activists, across more than 160 countries. Just like Campari and the Negroni, Slow Food has Italian roots, creating the perfect pairing. The Slow Food Negroni Week Fund will continue to directly support the hospitality community in 2023 and beyond, helping to preserve cultural and biological diversity, promote food and beverage education with knowledge exchange, and foster equity and justice. With the increased challenges facing the hospitality and food & beverage industries in recent years, this work is more important than ever.



WHAT NEGRONI WEEK 2023 HAS TO OFFER

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. Throughout the week there will be opportunities to celebrate cocktail culture and show appreciation for the art of mixology, recognising the dedication and skill of bartenders to create one of the world’s most iconic and loved cocktails. 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.
