The Cider Mill
El Gaitero is produced in an Asturian cider mill boasting a long-standing tradition dating back over a hundred years, and where visitors can enjoy a unique tour and discover the secrets of the essential flavour of Asturias: cider.
The history, dedication and passion that characterise this company can be sensed in each area of the facilities at La Espuncia. From the canigú – the reception area where the apples are delivered for pre-sorting and washing – and the Press Room – where the apples are crushed and the first juices extracted – to the bottling and packaging lines. Yet the true heart of Valle Ballina y Fernández is to be found in its four mills, known as Central, Provincial, Americas and the area housing the new stainless steel vats.
