Minutely hazy golden yellow color. Inviting aromas of ripe pear, walnut toffee, green olive, cherry blossom, and fondant with a velvety, lively, spritzy, dry light-to-medium body and a graceful, complex, long white pepper, apple skins, and pickled strawberry finish. An appetizing, stimulating Spanish cider that craves food; sour beer lovers need apply!

Spanish Cider

Asturians call it sidra, while those of the Basque region call it sagardoa; together they are the heading “Spanish Ciders” because they are truly a distinct style. Traditional Spanish ciders have the reputation of being quite tart – the blend of varietals definitely leans toward the sharp ones, and away from sweet & bittersweet. This has its own appeal, but the locals have figured out the best way to enjoy their beverage: pour like the escanciadores do, by “throwing” the cider into a glass from four or five feet away. This throw really changes the character of the cider, making it softer & more velvety & less acidic; it aerates the cider.
