About Quinquina

Quinquina is a French term used to categorise aperitifs made with a wine base in which the main flavour constituent is quinine (also termed Peruvian bark). Extremely popular at one time, today, the most popular brands of this style of aperitif are Lillet and Dubonnet.

This spirit first achieved popularity after Napoleon ordered troops stationed in Africa to consume it for medicinal reasons, serving as an anti-malarial and fever-reducer. The returning soldiers brought their taste for quinquina home with them.
