BASBAS - Hierbas from Ibiza

$72.00

Basbas is the most awarded hierbas in the world—a craft-distilled herbal spirit made with only the highest quality ingredients picked at their peak. The result is an impossibly smooth floral libation that stands on its own or in a cocktail.

Hierbas has been produced in Ibiza since the 16th century and many families have their own recipes they sell exclusively at their restaurant or bar. For years hierbas has remained confined to the Balearic islands because many traditional recipes are sugary and sweet.

The Basbas recipe is more than 100 years old, with all the key ingredients but a different distillation process that requires half the sugar and a secret maceration technique that produces a more complex flavor and a smoother drink.

“Bas” means “wild” in Basque, a reference to wild foraged herbs. The recipe has been protected by Ibiza's Carreró family for generations but dates back to 16th century monks living in northern Spain. 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.

25% ABV / 50 Proof
