Homewares, gourmet goodies, bath products, books, music and more – whether you’re searching for a gift or the ultimate Ibiza souvenir, it is the perfect place to shop.
Sal de Ibiza ‘The Store’ works with an ethos to support local brands and nowhere is this more apparent than the wall of delicious gastronomic goodies. From creamy carob chocolate – made with the buds taken from Ibiza’s abundance of carob trees – to the sweetest of jams, sweet locally made fig bread and bottles of Ibiza’s very finest, artisanal pressed olive oils from famous producers such as Can Cosmi and Can Rich.
Can Rich’s vineyard is also well represented throughout the store with a variety of white, red and rose wines alongside the island’s most recent wine success stories, Ibizkus. Fancy something a little stronger? Try juniper infused LAW Premium Dry Gin, Ibiza born and bred, hailing from the company voted best gin distillery in Spain 2016. Beer is also produced right here on the island in the form of smooth carob beers by Exquisite.
Ibiza’s history of alcohol production is longstanding, dating all the way back to the 1800s, with Hierbas Ibicencas the most famous of all. An integral part of island culture, this sweet, aniseed flavoured liquor is made by distilling around 37 different locally grown herbs for the perfect after-dinner digestive. A variety of brands of Hierbas are on offer at Sal de Ibiza ‘The Store’ – ideal for your home bar and gifts for friends alike.
For those looking to bring the taste of Ibiza into their home kitchen, Sal de Ibiza ‘The Store’ offers a wide selection of locally produced and influenced cookbooks, including tomes by renowned authors Sid Shanti and Anne Sijmonsbergen. Guidebooks too, such as the cool and quirky My Ibiza & Formentera by born and bred local Hjordis Fogelberg Jensen are worth picking up on arrival, helping you navigate the island like a local during your stay.
The store’s namesake brand takes centre stage within the stylish, airy interior. An entire wall is dedicated to the Sal de Ibiza products, from its signature little green pots, tubes and boxes of salt that have become synonymous with white isle souvenirs and flavours (with tasty twists on tradition including Smoky BBQ, Spicy Cajun, and Green Pepper and Lemon among others), to chocolate, sweets and even truffle flavoured crisps.
Last, but definitely not least, it’s not only the kitchen that can be given the Ibiza treatment, with a luxurious collection of bath and beauty products from Campos de Ibiza and Hierbas de Ibiza available to take home and continue to revel in those heady island scents. Both stores are open daily from 10am until until 9pm – be prepared to pay excess luggage charges at the airport with your Sal de Ibiza ‘The Store’ haul.
