Activity Overview
The residents of Mallorca enjoy sitting around a table to enjoy a homemade Heirbas; a liquor made from local herbs such as anise. Perhaps you’ll love to come and learn how to make Heirbas like a local. That’s alright! We’ll all meet at the Palma bus station and then proceed to the village of Epsorles; one of the scenic spots in the area. Here, will stroll around picking the herbs to make the Heirbas liquor.

Some herbs are not easy to find. Hence, we’ll have to visit some locals and get the herbs from them. You’ll love the encounter with the locals in Mallorca. Upon getting the herbs, we’ll assemble on the guide’s patio to start the preparation. He’ll take you through the making process. Later, we’ll have some snack as we mingle and enjoy the sunset in Spain. Interestingly, the Heirbas won’t be ready yet. So you won’t taste what you’ve brewed just yet. However, you’ll have the opportunity to taste some that were earlier prepared and is now ready. As for your Heirbas, don’t worry. You’ll take it with you. You’ll need to allow it to ferment for at least three months. After that, call some friends and enjoy the Heirbas; just like a Mallorca local.

I booked the tour for my husband as a birthday present and it turned out to be one of the "best.days." that we had on Mallorca. We are both not much into gardening but our guide Damia had so many interesting fact about the herbs as well as Mallorca and its people that we learnt a lot! We have been to Mallorca many times but been invited to ones house and picking herbs in their garden was a totally ... more new perspective on the islands culture. We thank Damia a lot for welcoming us into his home! We had a wonderful time and we will definitely recommend this tour to our friends!

The tour was my highlight during my travel time in Mallorca! Damià was super likeable and could tell just everything about the ingredients for making the liquor and about the villages and the surroundings of Esporles! Collecting them in the beautiful hills and putting them in the bottle was a lot of fun, I think a homemade liquor from Mallorca is the best souvenir you can take back home :) The best ... more part was the typical mallorquin snack-time in the evening in the lovely patio, whre I was able to taste some typical dishes like pa amb oli and sobrasada. I was travelling alone as a girl and therefore had a few doubts when booking the trip, but it was really no problem at all and I felt super comfortable during the whole trip - Damià even was so kind to practice with me my little Spanish during the bus ride! :)
