Liquor Review Notes:
The brilliantly scarlet Campari liqueur is one of the most famous bitter liqueurs in the world. It is the quintessential astringent (that is, the opposite of sweet) liqueur. It was first made in 1860 by Gaspare Campari, where his liqueur Bitter Ulo Olanda became popular as an aperitif. Over the decades it has enjoyed constant popularity both on its own and a key ingredient in many different cocktails.
There is a fine tradition of commercial artwork behind Campari that makes for an invigorating website visit.

"Grab your flippers and spread your grippers!" Sweet when first sipped, but then the screw face bitterness hits you. The carmine red is a nice touch. It looks really good just sitting there all by itself, and that would make it a "Looking at" liqueur.

The taste reminds me of cherry Sucrets from my childhood. Its a good mixer in a few drinks, but not near as versatile as Aperol. I probably wont buy any more of this.

This Campari Bitter Liqueur is exactly that - bitter!! It has a little bit of sweetness to it on the front end and then get ready to grab your ankles on the finish! :) It's a quality finish, but it definitely grabs your tonsils on the way down!

Whoa! This is some interesting stuff! It says it right on the label: BITTER liqueur. Is it ever bitter. It is exactly, cherry candy sweet on the front part of your mouth. Yum! Then you swallow it. And it curdles up the sides of your tongue like pickle juice (except it's herbal and doesn't taste like pickle). This stuff would dry up any drink in a snap. I think it's something your bar should have. Think you're a man taking a shot of jagger? Take a shot of this stuff... that'll put hair on your chest.
