BEST QUALITY CIDER IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY
As its name suggests “the supreme, the sublime, the highest ones,” GORENAK represents the highest-quality sagardoa or Basque cider brands.
Wearing the GORENAK black top or “txapela” means this cider meets high quality control requirements and has obtained high qualifications in a cider tasting accredited by the Fraisoro Laboratory.
There a few brands who can guarantee the best quality. Gaztañaga is one of them proving the maximum quality in ciders.
To achieve the best quality of the cider, it´s essential that the quality of the apples is the best.
For this reason, in Gaztañaga, we do have our own apple trees, which are take cared with mime and sublime attention. Taking into account that the demand is greater than the productionof our cider, we import apples from outside. Those apples are selected by our professionals juts to be sure we buy the best apples in the market.
In Bereziartua, we use apple varieties from Galicia, France and local apples and thanks to recent efforts to promote Basque Country’s products, we have been able to slowly recover local apple production.
We will follow the stages of washing and mashing of the apple, through to it’s pressing.
Hygienists and doctors have recorded the benefits which this drink affords.
Cider can be consumed in fairly large quantities without negative effects. In fact it protects against stones and gout.
Some doctors even indicate anti-arthritic and anti-carcinogenic properties.
