Cider is produced in the northern regions of Spain, also known as “Green Spain” because it gets a lot of rain, which is perfect for apple growing. Around 80% of Spanish ciders are made in the region of Asturias; other producers are Galicia, Cantabria and the Basque Country.
In September and October apples are harvested and then they are left to ferment for six months. The cider is fermented only with the natural yeast found in the apples, and no extra sugar is added. When ready, the cider has a very dry taste, is quite cloudy, still has sediment in the bottom and it has a yellowish-green color.
