"Gastronomy in Asturias is synonymous with a total dedication to the cult of good food." -Anon
Come take a sip of Asturius with us. Ken is back in all his sidra glory!
Viuda de Angelon Sidra de Pera, $16.75/4pk: A sparkling off-dry perry (pear cider). In past centuries in Asturias, an ancient source of excellent cider, they pressed apples or pears. Viuda de Angelon has revived the lost tradition of pear cider to produce this longed-for nectar once again, using only estate grown pears and no added sugar.
Sidra Brut Viuda de Angelon, $17: A sparkling dry cider which preserves the original earthy flavor of traditional sidra. This bubbly is the tops!
Guzman Riestra Sidra Brut Nature, $18: Selection of only its richest matured, natural cider for a second in-bottle fermentation makes this unusually full-flavored and aromatic for a naturally sparkling cider. It is spiritous with pear and banana notes. French apples in the blend contribute an extra touch of tannic piquancy.
Sidra Natural Riestra, $12: A natural, dry, unfiltered Spanish cider. Traditional still cider with fruity aromas and the characteristic acidity of Spanish and French apples that demands pairing with cured cheese and meats.
Diamantes de Hielo, $24: A sweet, ice cider. Frozen apples are freshly pressed and the juice is gradually drip-thawed to concentrate sugar and flavor intensity. It is then fermented and aged to a sweet and spirituous sipping wine.
