Cider in the Basque Country has a thousand-year-old origin, rooted in the region’s rural and agricultural life.

It is a fermented apple drink, traditionally shared in cider houses.

The expression “txotx”, which refers to the act of tasting the cider directly from the barrel or cupela, a social and festive practice that invites diners to get up and fill their glasses, symbolising camaraderie and celebration, is a must when tasting cider.
