- Cinchona bark is widely used as a cooking ingredient. Taken from the bark of the cinchona tree, it is full of a compound called quinine.
- One use for cinchona bark is to flavour your own tonic water. Simply steep the bark in boiling water before straining and using as a base for one of your favourite gin cocktails.
- If you don’t drink gin, you can also use the cooled infusion as the basis for non-alcoholic cocktails by adding elderflower cordial.
- Peruvian cinchona bark is also known as quina roja and is steeped in hot water to create a herbal tea. Steep the bark in water for around ten minutes, and flavour with lemongrass, cinnamon and cardamom.
- As with all of our products, this cinchona bark is sourced from the most reliable suppliers and carefully packaged to ensure freshness and quality.
