Description

Txotx

Discover local gastronomy by visiting one of the most traditional cider houses in the San Sebastián region, where you can get to know the txotx ritual! in a unique environment.

One of the autochthonous drinks par excellence is "cider", an alcoholic beverage that is obtained from the juice of fermented apple. Originally, this drink was made in farmhouses, mainly in the northwest of the province of Guipuzcoa. Traditionally, the landlords went from farmhouse to farmhouse to taste the cider produced by their neighbors.
