The Basque cider has arrived at Salumeria Gardens! If you love cider but always find it a little to sweet, then this is the one for you as its a dry version.
The taste of Basque cider is quite different from the other European ciders — in Basque Country (and Asturias — another Atlantic coast region of Spain), cider is what we call “natural” cider. It has no additives of carbonation or sugar, what makes it quite sour and dry. As a result, we always serve cider in small amounts (about 100 to 200ml in a wide glass), and we drink it straight away after it’s been served. To serve, we splash it into the glass, pouring from a very long distance so the cider aerates — if you let it linger too long in the glass, the aeration gets lost and the cider won’t be enjoyable to drink.
