Learn to make the famous liqueur of Ibiza – Hierbas Ibicencas
This is our fun and interactive Hierbas making workshop, held at Kasbah!
We can’t decide if its the tranquil seaside location, the beautiful views or the stunning sunsets that make Kasbah so great, but it wont matter as you will get to experience it all when you come for our workshops. Combined with fantastic food, exquisite cocktails, and the special gin and tonic menu done by the Ibizan tonic water – Botink – it makes the perfect place to have dinner and watch the sun go down.
This workshop is all about making the famous liqueur of Ibiza that is Hierbas Ibicencas.
We start off with going through some of the history of Hierbas on Ibiza, how the locals used to prepare it in the traditional way, and why they were doing this. We then go into how this relates to an even deeper history of alcohol and medicine within Europe and the world.
You will get to taste different types of Hierbas from around Ibiza too. We will have a selection of different versions so you can taste what some of the differences are between the main brand, and some of the more artisanal styles.
All the herbs, botanicals, and flowers will be displayed on the table in front of you – with the majority of them picked fresh from the island just for this workshop. You will get to touch, smell, taste them all. We will tell you where you can find them in the wild, and also explain a little about the medicinal properties of each.
And last of all you will get to select your own herbs to make your own bottle, which you can personalise to your taste. We pour in the anis liqueur, close the bottle, and give it an authentic wax seal. Complete with a personalised label with your name on it you get to take it home and show it off to your friends and family!
The hardest part is waiting for your beautiful bottle to become ready to drink!
