Chinchón Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


Chinchón became famous thanks to its aniseed spirit, and above all because of the Countess of Chinchón, who was responsible for the discovery of quinine, isolated by Pelletier and Caventou in 1820. The wife of the viceroy of Peru had been cured of a tropical fever in the 17C, thanks to a remedy prepared by Indians with Peruvian bark, and had some brought back to Europe. The Swedish scientist Linné gave it the scientific name of chinchona in her honour.
