Signor Felice Bisleri was an Italian pharmacist, a maker of liquor and freedom fighter under Garibaldi (1865-67).

Bisleri was born in Gerolanuova near Brescia. He established the Felice Bisleri & Co. chemical laboratory in Milano, developing the successful "Ferro-China Bisleri", an amaro (drink) made as an alcohol infusion of cinchona bark, herbs, and iron salts. The company also made the wellselling "Nocera Umbra" mineral water named after Nocera Umbra (1894), as well as the "l'esanofele", a chemical based on quinine, iron and arsenic to combat malaria (1899). Bisleri died in San Pellegrino. The Via Felice Bisleri in Milan is named after him, and the Bisleri mineral water brand still exists.
