Sidrería Gaztañaga was founded in 1989. However, their family cider-making tradition goes back several generations. The building in which the cider house is located was previously a family farm. Today, Sidrería Gaztañaga has state-of-the-art facilities and technology. They grow their own apples in Gaztañaga, and their professionals choose the highest quality fruit on the market from nearby Galicia and France. The bottle’s gorenak (“the supreme, the sublime”) black top label shows that this cider meets high qualifications in control and cider tasting.

Gaztañaga was awarded the best cider of Gipuzkoa in 2016 because of its aromas of green apples, olives, with hints of sweet fruits. In the palate, it’s musty, with a distinct funkiness, and savory umami flavors. Very well balanced and round with great acidity and fresh clean finish. Cider has many health benefits without negative effects.
