Discover San Sebastián's best-kept secret with this Traditional Cider House Tour. You'll have the opportunity to learn all about this classic Spanish sidra and enjoy a tasting session.
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, 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.
Depending on the season and availability, we'll visit the Aburuza, Astarbe, Petritegi, Iparragirre or Saizar cider houses.
All of our providers comply with local legislation and applicable health recommendations regarding protective material and safety to help avoid the spread of Covid-19.
