THE MOST AWARDED HIERBAS IN THE WORLD
THE SPIRIT OF IBIZA
A truly bohemian port city founded by the Carthaginians in 654 BC, the island had played home to Romans, Arabs, Catalons, then the Catholic Church. In the '70s, the island's wild mystique drew Woodstock-era icons like Bob Marley. Joni Mitchell wrote her iconic album “Blue” on the island and Nico mused that the mystical island was an inspiration for some of the Velvet Underground’s most important work.
At Basbas we carry with us the free spirited traditons of old and embrace the new art spirit of the island. Every bottle comes filled with the intention to build, communicate and play in whatever medium you choose.
“Bas” means “wild” in Euskera (the Basque language), a reference to wild foraged herbs. The recipe has been protected by Ibicenco families for generations but dates back to 16th century monks living in the Isles Balearia. Often used as a remedy, the monks fermented wild anise, then extracted essential oils of other herbs like rosemary,
juniper, chamomile and sage into the alcohol.
