HIERBAS IBICENCAS WORKSHOP
MAKE YOUR OWN SOUVENIR WITH HIERBAS IBICENCAS
Duration: 4 hours
The “Hierbas Ibicencas” (litterally: herbs from Ibiza) is a typical drink of Ibiza: like the other typical products of the Pitiusan gastronomy, they are elaborated with ingredients of yesteryear cultivated by the inhabitants of the island, who are used to a subsistence economy. This sweet green/amber spirit drink has been produced since more than 200 years by hydro-alcoholic maceration of various aniseed plants.
Enjoy a unique afternoon in a heavenly location. Live the experience of collecting the herbs of the island, and then produce for yourself this iconic Ibiza drink. We will pick you up at your hotel or at the port of Ibiza at 4 pm and we will take you to a beautiful location on the island, where we will collect those typical herbs. Then we will prepare the famous “Hierbas Ibicencas” (herbs from Ibiza), with the assistance from our local guide. You will take the bottle that you will prepare as a souvenir, although the preparation will not be suitable for consumption, but you will have a very special memory of our island. After having lived this wonderful experience and connected with an ancestral custom of Ibiza, we will prepare an appetizing snack where you will taste typical products of the Island and delicious drinks, as well as the famous “Hierbas Ibicencas”.
Note: The actual herbs that we will use for brewing the drink will not be the ones we will harvest together. We will use herbs provided by locals producers.
