Our Story

At the end of the 19th century, the first spirits industry in the Balearic islands emerged in Formentera. As is well known, many residents of 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. He later developed an interest in how drinks and liqueurs were produced at that time. 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.
