Why Hierbas

why is its aroma so distinctive
when compared to other herb liqueurs?

Born of a unique terrain, the countryside of Ibiza and Formentera - with its rich diversity of microclimates - provides the specific quantities of minerals and moisture that lend its aromatic plants their excellent properties. This means that the wild aromatic plants and those cultivated on Ibiza and Formentera have properties that have a unique effect on the human body.

Our Story

Master artisans since 1880

For more than 130 years Familia Marí Mayans has been dedicated to researching aromatic plants and making high quality and tasty liqueurs.

These are the result of tests and knowledge, studied and passed on from generation to generation, always using the artisan techniques of yesteryear, a sure seal of tradition and quality.

At the end of the 19th century, the first spirits industry of the Balearic Islands emerged in Formentera. As is well known, at that time many of the people living on Formentera worked fishing, growing food and keeping livestock. But one of these, Juan Mari Mayans, around the year 1880, had other ideas and with his llaüt he travelled over and back from Barcelona supplying the island with objects and utensils not found there. He knew the secrets of the still and how to distil alcohol.

Juan Marí Mayans, had a keen interest in aromatic and medicinal plants and studied their properties, later developing an interest in distilling drinks and liqueurs. He carefully collected formulae and recipes from past centuries. It is thanks to this and the in-depth studies he carried out on the effects and benefits of the aromatic plants of the island that we can enjoy the liqueurs produced today by Familia Mari Mayans

In 1997, the Hierbas Ibicencas geographical designation was approved, affording the geographical name a level of protection, guaranteeing the quality of the product and preventing unfair competition.
Hierbas Ibicencas is synonymous with the name Familia Mari Mayans.
