Cider is a typical alcoholic drink from the north of Spain, specifically Asturias, with a low alcohol content and very refreshing. It is obtained from fermented apple juice. There are two products protected by the designation of origin: cider and natural cider.
Cider: it is the drink that results after the partial or total alcoholic fermentation of the fresh apple or its must, with a minimum alcohol level of 5%. We differentiate dry, semi-dry and sweet cider, depending on the amount of sugar they contain. Its aroma reminds us of fresh apple or applesauce, with a bright and clean yellow colour.
Natural cider: it is produced following traditional methods, without adding sugars and with endogenous carbon dioxide. The minimum alcoholic content is also 5% by volume.
