New in: Sidras El Gaitero

posted on 7 August 2018 by admin

Shift over craft beers, cider is back throwing its hat into the ring just in time for August and who better to lead the charge at ultracomida than iconic Asturian brand El Gaitero.
 
If you didn't already know, few regions go as cider silly as the Spanish Asturias, where sidra isn’t merely the most prevalent drink in town, it’s a full blown religion!
 
And spreading that Asturian spirit are producers Valle, Ballina y Fernandez S.A. It's incredible to think that they shot to fame over a century ago, crossing the  Atlantic to the new American continent with their freshly champagnized El Gaitero sparkling sidra.  

Fast forward to today and not only is it Spain’s no.1 cider - bottling a mind-boggling 70,000 bottles a day - El Gaitero has also continued its international ascent becoming one of the most respected cider brands in the world.

The handsome town of La Espuncia (Villaviciosa, Asturias) is home of El Gaitero which translates to bagpiper -  a constant figure on it's bottling for over a century. It is here that the producers have expanded their output to create an extensive award-winning portfolio which includes an impressive range of offerings, now available through ultracomida

White Label

This seminal sidra is delightfully crisp, with nuanced aromas and is even compared to an invigorating glass of Cava. Local apples are used to create a light clear straw-yellow cider with fine persistent bubbles. A must try this summer
