El Gaitero

Learn about the history of the famous cider in the whole world

Our story begins with a melting pot of events and people. People who embarked on a venture to plant apple orchards in Villaviciosa, who longed for a taste of their homeland, its customs and drinks from across the miles and a series of events that favoured sea trade from the Port of Gijón.

Since 1900, our cider mill has stood on the shores of Villaviciosa tidal estuary in La Espuncia. More than 40,000 square metres dedicated to the apple reception zone, the press rooms and the bottling and packaging lines. The company’s offices are also located here, as well as the building housing El Gaitero’s permanent collection.
