Characteristics of Petritegi Natural Cider
Petritegi cider is characterised by its unquestionable personal character, the result of our cider makers’ long experience. To make it we combine the apples perfectly (60-70% local) and use traditional production methods passed down from our elders. The result is balance between the hint of acidity that gives us that fresh feeling and a subtle bitterness that leaves a perfect taste in the mouth.
Ingredients: Cider apples from the Basque Country (70%) and other regions.

Unfiltered product. With time, sediment tends to form at the bottom of the bottle. Before opening, we recommend turning the bottle upside down and shaking it to homogenise the cider.
To get the very best of flavour from the cider, the glass should be wide-mouthed and thin-walled. When serving, the bottle should be raised slightly so that the cider splashes off the wall of the glass; it should be consumed immediately. Once open, the cider should be consumed almost immediately, replacing the cork to keep it fresh.
To enjoy its qualities to the full, we recommend that the cider is consumed within 15 months from the date of bottling. It is advisable to store the product in a fresh place and without greatly varying changes in temperature.
