The Perfect Christmas Present…
Join us on Thursday evening at the stylish social hub that is Project Social to learn everything there is to know about this uniquely Ibicencan liqueur!
Christmas is coming, and if you still have no idea what to get for those relatives, why don’t you knock a few presents off your list early by being organised and giving the gift of a bottle of homemade Hierbas. Not only is it unique to Ibiza, it also has that personal touch of being hand made by yourself… And what’s more, you are the one that gets to take part in the experience.
So, join us and get merry on a few cheeky glasses of different artesenal hierbas from around the island, make your own bottle to give away (or keep for yourself!), and treat yourself to one of the best burgers in Ibiza afterwards (burger not included). Not a bad combination…
One thing to note: Your hierbas won’t quite be ready to crack open at Christmas as it takes time for the wonderful flavours to come out and create that iconic taste. We recommend waiting at least 2 months before drinking, so just keep this in mind if you plan to give it away from Christmas.
This workshop is all about learning to make 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!
