El Gaitero Spanish Cider
El Gaitero company was founded in the 19th century when the demand for Spanish cider increased and they began exporting it from Spain to the Spanish colonies and to America. It was in 1888 that Alberto del Valle aqcuired the French machinery that would enable him to carbonate the traditional local Asturian cider. El Gaitero is fermented from 100% freshly pressed apples, sweetened and carbonated. For over a century it has been popular as a poor man’s Champagne for toasting special occasions. A medium dry, refreshing cider, full of flavour; a versatile drink that is best served cold by itself or accompanying snacks.
