Almost 3,000 endangered fig trees from 1,308 different varieties. Son Mut Nou, an estate in the heart of the Marina de Llucmajor in Mallorca, is committed to conserving and analysing all the different types of fig trees. That is the aim of Montserrat Pons y Boscana, a pharmacist from Llucmajor, whose love for fig trees and research on their importance in Mallorcan life and history led her to begin a project which is the only one of its kind in the world.

Son Mut Nou is an experimental area where fig trees are grown so they can be studied and better known scientifically. This also allows an analysis of their importance in the development of Mallorcan society, founded on the land and agriculture.

To discover the origin of Suau brandy, you have to go back to the middle of the 19th century, when Don Juan Suau, also known as “The Mallorcan”, began to grow a business making aniseed liqueurs and other spirits in the Americas. On a trip to Mallorca he fell in love with a young woman that came from a family which was also involved in the drinks business. Don Juan decided to stay in Mallorca and founded Bodegas Suau.

This company makes five different types of superior quality brandy, a London dry gin and a rum which combines the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. The bodegas are almost 200 years old and are located within a protected building which has enormous artistic and cultural value. Time stands still in the bodegas, combining with ageing and patience to create a unique and very special brandy.
