Description - Research and Analysis

The genus Cinchona contains about forty species of trees. They grow 15-20 meters in height and produce white, pink, or yellow flowers. All cinchonas are indigenous to the eastern slopes of the Amazonian area of the Andes, where they grow from 1,500-3,000 meters in elevation on either side of the equator (from Colombia to Bolivia). They can also be found in the northern part of the Andes (on the eastern slopes of the central and western ranges). They are now widely cultivated in many tropical countries for their commercial value, although they are not indigenous to those areas.

Cinchona, or quinine bark, is one of the rainforest's most famous plants and most important discoveries. Legend has it that the name cinchona came from the countess of Chinchon, the wife of a Peruvian viceroy, who was cured of a malarial type of fever by using the bark of the cinchona tree in 1638. It was supposedly introduced to European medicine in 1640 by the countess of Chinchon, even before botanists had identified and named the species of tree. Quinine bark was first advertised for sale in England in 1658, and was made official in the British Pharmacopoeia in 1677. Physicians gave credit to the drug and, because of its effectiveness with malaria, it was recognized officially even while the identity of the tree species remained unknown. Several years after the "Countess's powder" arrived in England, it arrived in Spain. There, quinine bark was used by the Jesuits very early in its history and due to the influence of the Company of Jesus, the newly named "Jesuit's powder" became known all over Europe. When the plant was finally botanically classified almost one hundred years later in 1737, botanists still named it after the countess for her contribution. Throughout the mid-1600s to mid-1800s quinine bark was the primary treatment for malaria and it evidenced remarkable results. It was also used for fever, indigestion, mouth and throat diseases, and cancer.

Natural quinine bark is still employed in herbal medicine systems around the world today. In Brazilian herbal medicine quinine bark is considered a tonic, a digestive stimulant, and fever-reducer. It is used for anemia, indigestion, gastrointestinal disorders, general fatigue, fevers, malaria and as an appetite stimulant. Other folk remedies in South America cite quinine bark as a natural remedy for cancer (breast, glands, liver, mesentery, spleen), amebic infections, heart problems, colds, diarrhea, dysentery, dyspepsia, fevers, flu, hangover, lumbago, malaria, neuralgia, pneumonia, sciatica, typhoid, and varicose veins. In European herbal medicine the bark is considered antiprotozoal, antispasmodic, antimalarial, a bitter tonic, and a fever-reducer. There it is used as an appetite stimulant, for hair loss, alcoholism, liver, spleen, and gallbladder disorders; and to treat irregular heart beat, anemia, leg cramps, and fevers of all kinds. In the U.S., quinine bark is used as a tonic and digestive aid; to reduce heart palpitations and normalize heart functions; to stimulate digestion and appetite; for hemorrhoids, varicose veins, headaches, leg cramps, colds, flu, and indigestion; and for its astringent, bactericidal, and anesthetic actions in various other conditions.

Fabulous stuff!  Quinine Bark (Red Cinchona) Powder

I've bought powdered cinchona from different places. This product is top quality cinchona. I have been successful using it for my tonics. I steep it longer than usual, so you may have better results if you steep it like I do. The taste is perfect. It will add the correct quantity of sourness to your tonic water. I keep ordering this from this site!

You can make tonic easily  Quinine Bark (Red Cinchona) Powder

I use quinine to make tonics. Put the powder in little muslin spice bags. Add it to water along with any spices, and allow it to simmer. Strain it before adding sugar, which makes it thicker and harder to strain. Then add sugar to taste (avoid agave).

A Must for Vesper Cocktail  Quinine Bark (Red Cinchona) Powder

I used it as an ingredient for the classic James Bond martini. Adds a distinct astringency that would otherwise be difficult to attain.

See: http://www.esquire.com/features/ESQ1106DRINKS_84 for the recipe.

I recommend you start out with less quinine than the recipe calls for. Zooscape's product is very fresh, with an intense bitterness; a little goes a long way.

  Quinine Bark (Red Cinchona) Powder

I use the powdered bark to make tonic water. I am a resort Bartender and have tried other sources for powdered bark. I find Zooscape's product to be consistent and superior.

I would give a five star rating on Zooscape's quinine bark, but, I haven't met a five star bark yet...

I know 5 star!
