Santa Maria Novella is one of the oldest pharmacies in the world. Founded by Dominican friars in 1221, the year of their arrival in Florence, the pharmacy used medicinal herbs grown in the monastic gardens to make medications, balms and pomades for the monk’s infirmary. Santa Maria Novella products including colognes, soaps, bath and body products, ancient preparations are still hand made on site in Florence, according to age-old recipes and artisans methods.


The roots of the word ‘china’ (Chincona) can be traced back to pre-Columbian in Peru. There are a wealth of interesting tales surrounding the history of china, one of which tells of the wife of the governor of Peru who was cured of a malarial fever by the extract of the tree’s bark. Fra’ Gian Domenico Cavalieri, who directed the pharmacy from 1659 until 1684, passed down to the Officina the recipe of this special liqueur. 

The principal ingredient of Elisir di China is alcoholic extract of Chincona calisaya, enriched with other herbs and spices. Elisir di China can be served straight or with ice as an aperitif; it becomes a good digestive when served hot with a piece of lemon.
