A guide to Cynar and how to serve
Cynar – Production and Tasting Notes
Cynar is an artichoke based bitter sweet liqueur known for its versatility and distinctive flavour – and enriched by a secret infusion of 13 herbs and plants. The most characteristic among them are artichoke leaves from which the name of the drink derives – – ’Cynar Scolymus’ being the botanic definition of artichoke. Cynar’s unique flavour is achieved through a two stage infusion process: First – all herbs are charged in a percolator – where they are continuously infused with a specific mixture of alcohol and water. This process releases the herbs aromas and colours – exploiting the alcohols extractive power. After the first filtration, the extract is then batched to rest for at least 1 month – to obtain the perfect marriage of flavours. The Cynar extract is mixed with water, sugar and caramel in accordance to the recipe – to obtain Cynar’s unique dark amber brown colour. Finally, the mix is balanced – for a perfectly woody bittersweet taste of aromatic herbs, artichoke and caramel – – ready to be bottled, labelled and enjoyed.
