Asturias is the real cider capital of Spain. All over the region, cider houses or sidrerías serve local cider (sidra natural), and many ordinary bars offer it too, particularly in summer when the locals drink vast quantities of the stuff –justified, partly, by its low-alcohol content (3.5 per cent).

Asturian sidra natural should be poured in small amounts from above the head into a glass held at waist height. This aerates the still cider and improves the taste, but only if it’s drunk quickly before the bubbles subside.
