Visit the cities of Oviedo and Gijón – or anywhere in Asturias really -, go out for a meal or a few tapas, and you will soon be drawn to the irresistible call of Asturian cider.

An iconic beverage of this region, nearly 1.5 million bottles of PDO Sidra de Asturias certified cider were sold in 2014. In order to classify for this protected status, PDO Sidra de Asturias must be produced according to strict traditional and authorized techniques that start with the treatment of the apples, and end when you tip back a glass of this natural product.

But if you want to learn more about the wonderful ciders of Asturias, don’t take my word for it, check out this beautifully written and illustrated article entitled The Apple of their Eye on www.whereisasturias.com.

This fantastic English-language website is packed with information about this northern Spanish region, from tips on the Camino de Santiago, to how to do business in Asturias, restaurant ideas, sights and much more. It is an overall great resource for anyone panning to visit this gorgeous Spanish community.
