Destilerías Marí Mayans was founded in 1880 by Juan Marí Mayans. As a lover of aromatic and medicinal plants, and a student of their properties, he developed a clear vocation for the manufacture of drinks and liquers at that time.

It was through this careful collection of formulas and recipes from the past century, and intensive study of the effects and benefits of the island's wild aromatic plants, that Juan Marí Mayans was able to create the wonderful liquers for which Destilerías Marí Mayans is so well known.

Today, his 5th generation heirs continue to keep up the old tradition and craftsmanship, combining them with modern technology to offer these unique and unchanging drinks.

Marí Mayans Absinthe Bebida Espirituosa (Spirit Drink) has been produced since the founding of the distillery in approximately 1858 in Formentera where the building still stands. Officially registered in 1880 by Juan Marí Mayans, a herbalist known all over the region for his expertise in high quality distillation and knowledge of fine herbs. He moved the distillery to Ibiza where it is still run by his descendants.

It is made from distilling the leaves and stems of hand-picked Artemisia Absinthium (Wormwood) and is then macerated in herbs. The resulting spirit is a mesmerizing green that clouds when water is added (known as Louche). It is 100% natural and is created to this day using the same formula that made the distillery famous in the last century with exports to England, France, Germany and the rest of Europe.

Absinthe was allegedly invented by Dr. Pierre Ordinaire in 1792 as an all-purpose remedy. Used as a cure-all, it was nicknamed La Fée Verte or The Green Fairy; a nickname that has stuck.

Indeed Ernest Hemmingway referred to Absinthe as 'idea changing liquid alchemy' and Absinthe's artistic properties have formed the basis for its mysterious and sometimes controversial history.

Marí Mayans Absinthe Collectors 70 Spirit Drink has many characteristics which differentiate it completely to other brands of Absinthe. It is distinguished by its purity and intense aroma, although it is one of the strongest currently on the market (70%). It has been acclaimed by many European and American magazines as the Original Absinthe.

Marí Mayans Absinthe Collectors 70 Spirit Drink has again been awarded a silver medal at the prestigious International Wines & Spirits Competition in consecutive years, 2000 and 2001. In International Wine and Spirit Competition (2002), the Absinthe Collectors 70 Spirit Drink was awarded a GOLD MEDAL, and the Absinthe 55 Spirit Drink was awarded the Silver Medal

It was also voted best Absinthe in a blind tasting for Class magazine with a 5 star rating, notes on the tasting below:

With its translucent lime / apple green colour, the nose was a rich, clean blast of aniseed balls. A full, rich mouthfull blended aniseed with fresh citrus notes, extended by a ripe orange sweetness, before finishing with a clean burst of aniseed. Water not only clouded it but prompted an impressive 'Disprin' foaming action, while the attractive aniseed nose led onto equally forthright aniseed notes rounded by orangey hints.

Absinthe Collectors 70, it's the only absenthe with the "Absenta Plant" inside.

Size: 50 CL
