This is article is the verbatim promo featured on Campari's retail website.

I removed the information about Gruppo Campari; its status in the beverage industry is irrelevant to Campari itself. ObtuseAngle 20:17, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
The tone doesn't strike me as 'neutral.' I mean, I like the stuff but suggest removing some of the obvious puffery. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.114.164.41 (talk) 16:20, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Cochinelle[edit]

Is Campari drinkable to Vegetarians now is the question? Most posts say "No" because it contains Cochinelle (i.e. red colour producing scales) but this says "yes". I have the impression that this abmiguity is only due to the fact that the entire wiki posting is for promotional purpose only. And that leads me to another point of discussion already mentioned by another user: is that tone still "neutral"? Answer: no. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.180.135.191 (talk) 20:15, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

The statement in this article, "It is known[citation needed] that the colour came from natural Carmine Cochineal E120, but Gruppo Campari shifted to an alternative colorant in the vast majority of its worldwide production (including the US) in 2006" seems dubious. A bottle recently purchased in the US in 12/2009 states "CONTAINS NATURAL CARMINE".

Alcohol percentage[edit]

The bottle of Campari I have in my cupboard says "25% alcohol", while other bottles I have seen says "20%". So what is this article supposed to say? Wookieface (talk) 23:41, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Bitters, not liqueur[edit]

Liqueurs are served with/as desert. Campari is an alcoholic aperitif.

It's a bitters: [1] [2] [3] The word bitter written in large print on the label is also pretty good evidence. - TheMightyQuill 02:54, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

relevent?[edit]

Should this be kept in the article?

A parody ad for Campari which ran in Hustler magazine alleged that Jerry Falwell lost his virginity to his mother in an outhouse.

I moved it here for discussion. RJFJR 15:42, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

"Campari ostensibly caters to the discriminating adult taste." This isn't encyclopedic language. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 165.123.213.40 (talk) 00:58, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Expiry of Campari[edit]

I have a bottle of campari from last two months which is kept in my car. I usually park my car under the temperature of 35degrees.

I just wanted to know that the drink has expired or can be consumed further.

bitter or liqueur?[edit]

The article starts with Campari is an alcoholic liqueur, but the header ends with It is a bitter characterised by its dark red colour.
So is it a bitter or liqueur? From what I've understand, liqueurs are sweet, but I think Campari is not (though it has much sugar). 82.141.126.28 (talk) 01:25, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

To be honest I'm having a hard time figuring it out. Not all liqueurs are sweet (see Chartreuse). I think the difference is that liqueurs always have sugar added, but I'm not entirely sure. I'll do some more digging later. Steven Walling • talk 07:18, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Huh? Chartreuse is not sweet? From its article: It is very sweet. But, the definition of liqueur seems not to be so strict: for example Jägermeister has categories "bitters" and "herbal liqueurs". 212.50.203.198 (talk) 22:10, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
