Hierbas Ibicencas is an aniseed-flavoured liqueur, made of aromatic plant extracts, with varying degree of sweetness. These liqueurs are very popular in the Balearic Islands, with a high level of production and consumption. Strangely enough, in the late 19th century the first example of what might be called a liqueur-making business was founded on Formentera rather than Ibiza.
In the corresponding regulation for this geographical designation Hierbas Ibicencas is defined as an aniseed-flavoured liqueur mainly made by extracting aromas from different plants that can be found in the area where it is produced such as fennel, thyme, rosemary, lemon verbena, lavender, rue, eucalyptus, camomile, juniper and juniper berries, oregano, mint, rockrose, the leaves and skin of oranges and lemons, and sage, together with other plants like Hierbas Ibicencas - Balearic Islands - Agrifoodstuffs, designations of origin and Balearic gastronomy star anise and green aniseed.
