Basbas is premium hierbas payesas, an herbal spirit unlike any other. Craft-distilled in Ibiza and made with only the highest quality ingredients hand picked at their peak, the result is an impossibly smooth, sweet-but-not-too-sweet libation that stands tall on its own or in a cocktail.
“Bas” means “wild” in Basque, a reference to wild foraged herbs. The recipe has been protected by the Carreró family for generations but dates back to 15th 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.
To this day, the spirit is present at practically every toast, meal and celebration in the Balearic Islands. The Basbas recipe is family owned and has been passed down over generations for more than 100 years. We celebrate her spiritual origins and the heritage of the Carerró family.
