The Liquid Spirit of Ibiza
ORO IBIZA is a gin made for Ibiza lovers, puristic and full of dedication to the island. “The Spirit of Ibiza” is designed for the free spirit of the hippie movement who moved to the island in the 60s, when colourful party people discovered the former pirate island. Nowadays, the best DJs in the world can be found here every summer. The unmistakable Ibiza sound plays in all the beach bars, and of course the ORO IBIZA with tonic is part of the vibe, because here, in Ses Salines, at Cap des Falco, in Cala Jondal, between sand, juniper trees, salt and sea, ORO IBIZA, the Liquid Spirit of Ibiza, was born.
40ml ORO IBIZA in a cocktail glass with ice, a slice of lemon, tonic of choice, decorated with some juniper berries or a small piece of carob.
According to the Phoenicians, the ferrous red earth of Ibiza is magical. Nothing that harms humans, grows here. Juniper trees, lemon and orange trees, chamomile, elderflowers and carob flourish under the legendary Ibicencan sun. Some of them on the rugged cliffs of Cala Albarca, some in the salty air by Ses Salines or in the calm forests of San Mateo, which smell of rosemary and aniseed. We use twelve organic Botanicals, almost all of which are said to have healing effects, including ginger, galangal, angelica root and cinnamon — a major reason why ORO IBIZA should be the gin of choice.
The distinctive feature of ORO IBIZA is the use of Algarrobo, the Ibicencan carob or St. John’s bread, for refining. Its dried dark brown pods smell like bitter coffee and sweet cocoa all at once, and are used amongst other things to produce chocolate. According to legend, John the Baptist fed himself on this wonderful, nutrient-rich and non-perishable fruit, when he spent his forty days in the desert. Its equally heavy seeds on the other hand, were used as a unit of measurement as far back as antiquity, according to popular legend. The word carat comes from this fruit, derived from the Arabic al-carob, al-carobo, al-garobo. To date, gold is measured in carats — hence the name ORO IBIZA.
Touched by Tanit
The COIN: an Ode to Ibiza
The PROCESS: Muy Tranquilo
Tanit is the protective goddess of fertility who is worshipped on Ibiza. Old Ibicencos say that she appears from time to time in the evening sun in the coastal areas of the island, blessing everything touched by the sun’s golden rays. What a good opportunity to breathe in and enjoy this connection with a glass of ORO IBIZA and tonic. Like magic, the profile of Tanit appears in the silhouette of the island, and the symbiosis of gold, the island and the Goddess led us to the coin, the logo of ORO IBIZA.
Ibiza used to be called Ebusus, derived from the Phoenician “ibusim”, which means island of wellbeing. As early as in the centuries before Christ, the delights and the spirit of the island were known, and in Roman times Ibiza was given the right to mint coins. Building on these occidental roots, we have coined the inscription “EBUSUS, CAPUT SPIRITUS MUNDI, FELICITATIS EBRIA”, meaning “IBIZA, CAPITAL OF THE FINE SPIRIT, DRUNK FROM HAPPINESS”. Each sip of our ORO IBIZA is a sip of happiness on earth.
ORO IBIZA is produced “muy tranquilo”: The twelve botanicals are weighed to the gram, partly ripped, partly cut, then mixed and macerated (soaked) in a multiple times distilled premium fine distillate made from home grown grains. The potency of the alcohol used for this - which must not be too high nor too low - is of great importance because it is the basis for the round, yet perfectly straight hint of Juniper that makes the ORO IBIZA so unique. Distillation takes place in copper stills, where a careful separation of the bad tones from the fine volatile aromas is done by hand. ORO IBIZA is then generously given the time to settle and unfold it’s full flavor at it’s own pace. Not until it has fully developed, the gin is filtered and cut to 43.2% volume with water from the springs and tertiary wells of Raitenhaslach. Tranquilo (span.: calm, relaxed) characterises the production of ORO IBIZA. Everyone should enjoy the calm that comes with a glass of ORO IBIZA, be it straight or mixed. It’s always worth a drink.
