In Ibiza, Spain Friday night is tapas and cocktail night. El Cocinero brought the taste of Ibiza in the heart of Manila.
The night’s highlight is Hierbas Ibicencas, the artist-crafted spirit infused and macerated with herbs from Balearics.
Heritage and Herbs
Hierbas Ibicencas are crafted using the handwritten recipes of Juan Mari Mayans, who pioneered the drink in 1880 and launched the Balearic Islands’ very first industrial distillery. These recipes have been closely guarded and handed down the generations of the Mari Mayans family in Ibiza.
The drinks are celebrated made with boldly artisanal methods that enlist numerously technological advances as well, enabling cutting-edge checks for quality-control standards.
In addition, the drinks are composed of herbs that grow naturally throughout the Balearics: lemon verbena, orange, lemon, anise, rosemary and flower of native thyme known as frigola. Further, all these are all hand-picked by the local farmer and brought to the Mari Mayan factory to be selected, weighed and incorporated into the preparation process. Good thing the process was carefully distilled, boiled, infused and macerated at it’s finest.
Ibiza’s party scene combines the rustic aromas of Hierbas Ibicencas with cosmopolitan flavors to create cocktail mixes that are uniquely Ibizan. Chef Arnaldo himself has designed his own cocktails for El Cocinero for his guest’ enjoyment.
You visit them at Molito Alabang, Tagaytay and Nasugbu branches.
