From the most ingrained tradition, that which passes from generation to generation, born in 1880 Marí Mayans family, la Ibiza's main liqueur company as Ibizan herbs, the frígola, the stick or the absinthe. A company that was born in Formentera by the hand of Juan Mari Mayans, creator of the original recipes. Today the fifth generation of the Marí Mayans Family, with the brothers Carlos and Bartolomé at the head, continues to innovate to bring to the five continents the trail of that visionary who discovered more than 140 years the possibilities offered by aromatic and medicinal plants from Pitiusas.
It is impossible to refer to the history of liquors in the Balearic Islands without mentioning the Marí Mayans Family, the first company in the sector to be established in the archipelago. What began nearly a century and a half ago with a modest pot still has grown into a renowned company that elaborates, produces and creates each drink in its factory in Ibiza.

Its liquors and distillates in authorized distributors are export to countries like Switzerland, Germany, Andorra, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, the United States, Romania, Russia, the Philippines, Australia or the United Arab Emirates.
There are several reasons that have led to this brand becoming faithful ambassador of Ibiza.

It also has a lot to do with the exhaustive study that Juan Marí Mayans carried out on the aromatic plants of the islands. An analysis that gave rise to an enviable collection of recipes that the family treasures under lock and key in handwritten notebooks. The type and quantity of plants used in its manufacture is kept secret to safeguard each original formula.
Despite the fact that the most popular drink of this family of alchemists is the Ibizan herbs, the Marí Mayans Family has a wider range, similarly characterized by following the processes and customs of the island. The Palo or the Frígola do not lack in the appetizers and in the aftermath of residents and tourists, while the Absinthe is a great known in the Ibiza nights. All the spirits of Familia Marí Mayans stand out for their intense flavor, its infinity of nuances and its versatility.
Also, in its eagerness to adapt to the new times, Marí Mayans Family has created IBZ Gin, IBZ 48 Premium Dry Gin and IBZ Pink Strawberry. An attractive reinvention of three gins with island touches. 'IBZ 48 Premium Dry Gin' is also the first gin in Spain with an 48 percent alcohol volume, one of the few that exist in the world with this graduation, and the first Spanish drink that has a flavor of this purity. It is a gin distilled and bottled in Ibiza that is already present in hotels, restaurants and supermarkets, as well as in the hands of distributors inside and outside Europe. This Ibizan company has used aromatic herbs from the island such as juniper berries, orange and lemon or thyme flowers for its preparation.
