The history behind Cynar isnt nearly as romantic as most of the other amari that we carry behind the bar, for the fact that the liqueur has only been in existence since the early 1950s. The liqueur gets its name from Cynara, which means artichoke in latin, and utilizes artichokes as one of the dominant ingredients for production. However, the essence of artichokes is not a prominent flavor because there are about 12 more herbal infusions for amaro. On the nose and palate Cynar begins sweet and vegetal and ends with a bitter finish.
