The recipe for this Ferro China Baliva Liqueur dates back to 1894 and was formulated by a Doctor Ernesto Baliva in Rome, Italy. It is less bitter and more approachable than many other ‘china’ (quinine) liqueurs and is made distinctive by iron citrate which adds delicious citrus notes. ‘Ferro’ would suggest that this liqueur will put iron, if not lead, in your pencil, and indeed this is a reference to its iron citrate content. ‘China’ is a contraction of Chinchona Chinchon, referring to extracts of bark from the cinchona tree, better known as quinquina or quinine.

Based Upon The Recipe Developed By Doct. Baliva In 1894, Pallini Offers The Infusion Based On Cinchona Bark Endowed With The Properties Of Iron, Which Has Been Awarded 8 Gold Medals. A Unique, Strong And Bitter Flavour For Those Who Want Something More Than A Digestive Liquor.
