The Spirit of Ibiza

Basbas is the most awarded hierbas in the world, with more than 30 international medals, 12 golds, two double-golds, two best-of category, and a consumer choice award. For a complete list of our awards, visit our awards page.

What is Hierbas?

Hierbas is a lower-ABV (25%) herbal spirit originally distilled by monks living in the Balearic Islands (Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera) around the 16th century. The monks used a base of star anise to macerate more than a dozen other wild herbs indigenous to the islands and create a tonic that they used medicinally (<-- not a health claim) and for ceremony. Since then it's been protected by a handful of families on the island.

“Bas” means “wild” in Euskara --the Basque language, a reference to wild foraged herbs in the bottle and the wild spirit of the people who make it. The recipe has been protected by Ibiza's Carreró family for generations.

What makes Basbas "premium" and taste so much better than other hierbas?

We use a delicate maceration technique that takes more than 10x longer than other hierbas you might find on the islands. Every herb, fruit and spice in each bottle is hand-harvested and locally sourced. Each added and removed to the mixture at precise intervals creating a smooth flavor with less sweetness than other hierbas. Basbas is the only mixable hierbas and can be used as the base spirit in traditional drinks like a Negroni or Mojito. Check out our instagram for inspiration. 

We also take an active approach to sustainability. There is no disposable plastic in our production process. Even the freshness capsule that seals each bottle is produced from compostable material--a polylactic acid extrusion (plant starches) to be precise. We're a member of 1% for the planet and donate an addition $1 from every bottle sold anywhere in the world to keep the waters of Ibiza plastic-free.

What does Basbas taste like?

Basbas comes on light and bright with a touch of sweet and island citrus. Super drinkable with a soul-warming herbaceousness and uplifting finish. It’s remarkably balanced and goes down easy before, during, after or way after dinner.

What You'll Taste: Anise, Sage, Citrus

What You'll Smell: Cinnamon, Anise, Rosemary

What You'll Feel: Happy to be alive

Can Basbas replace Chartreuse in my mixes?

Yes! With the short supply of Chartreuse many mixologists have turned to Basbas as the herbal component in their recipes. We think the taste of Basbas is more accessible and versatile, but Basbas does not produce the cloudy "louche" visual commonly associated with anisettes like Chartreuse and Ricard.

    A Smooth Sensation

    The taste was incredibly distinct. It's moderately sweet with very strong anaise flavor. It's also sooooo smooth wow.

    I must say the marketing team for this product did a fantastic job. I don't remember signing up for the email to alert me about the available product, but I ordered it anyway. I must say I've never had anything quite like it before. I've had some of the best orange liquors in the world along with absinthe. I detected wormwood and various other botanicals I couldn't identify. The taste has a luxurious mouthfeel and citrus on the tongue. I sip it neat and will eventually try it in a cocktail, but for now, I'm thoroughly enjoying it by itself.
