Distinctive local food specialities that will delight the folks back home (or let your Minorca holiday live on)
Sweet and savoury
No one will claim that Minorca is a top shopping destination, but like any high-quality destination, it does offer a few items that make wonderful mementos of your visit, particularly in the edible realm. On the sweet side, the top of the list are the pastries called ensaïmadas, sold in practically all bakeries and pastry shops in most of the island's cities and towns. On the savoury side, the mild but tasty Mahó-Menorca cheese shares billing with the very distinctive sobrassada. Top tipples include Xoriguer Gin (a top local cocktail being pomada, made from gin and lemonade) and eaux de vie Licores Biniarbolla.
