Traditional Cider House Tour

At 12 pm we'll meet in Bengoetxea street in San Sebastian and travel just 20 minutes by minibus to enjoy a visit to a traditional cider house

When we arrive at our destination, we'll tour the facilities of the Basque cider house. We'll see the apple orchards, the cellars, the production process and the history that links cider with the Basque Country. Did you know that Basque cider is kept at a lower temperature than Asturian cider? 

After the tour, we'll carry out the Txotx ritual, which consists of drinking the apple broth directly from the vats. While enjoying this tasting, we'll sample a menu consisting of a traditional appetizer, cod omelette, fried cod with peppers, grilled T-bone steak and cheese with quince jelly and walnuts. 

The tour will end going back to at the starting point in San Sebastián.

Cider Houses

Depending on the season and availability, we'll visit the Aburuza, Astarbe, Petritegi, Iparragirre or Saizar cider houses.
