Cinchona succirubra

Cinchona bark (Cinchona pubescens) has a distinctive warm red colour when cut and comes from South America, particularly the Andean rainforest and foothills in Peru. These small, evergreen trees belong to the family Rubiaceae and have waxy, dark green leaves. The pubescens variety is the most widely distributed of the Cinchona plants. Cinchona bark gets its name from the Countess of Chinchon, wife of a Spanish Viceroy of Peru. It was believed that she was cured of malaria in 1630 after consuming its bark. Today, it’s the national tree of Peru and Ecuador. To enquire about buying wholesale Cinchona bark in bulk, fill out the contact form below.

How is it used?

Cinchona is used in distilling and to create herbal tea blends. Similarly to the Cinchona officinalis, the bark of the pubescens tree has a high quinine content. In the UK, it’s most commonly used as a bittering agent and found in tonic water – a quintessential pairing with gin. It’s also known to help relieve the symptoms of malaria.
