The perfect accompaniment to Basque cuisine is the locally produced cider.
It is one of the region´s oldest traditional drinks, a tradition that can be savoured in every sip, whether it´s from a bottle sipped in a glass clinked together in a friendly toast or whether it´s straight from the “txotx” or barrel.

The cider restaurants are the places to go to have the full-on “txotx” experience and find out about the world of cider-making and cider drinking and the accompanying food featuring succulent steak and codfish tortilla. You can also go on guided visits to the cider producers and apple orchards, or you can even visit the Basque Cider Museum.
