You have to really like cider to go on a tour of a cider factory, a bit like all the whisky aficionados travelling around the highlands and islands distilleries, but this one's worth it. Villaviciosa is the capital of Spanish sidra, and Casa Cortina, just outside the town on a 20 minute walk, is a good place to see how they make this great drink. The tour guide really tried hard to help us out with first giving the descriptions in Spanish, then giving us an English translation. Even though we speak some Spanish, it was kind of her to accommodate us. For only 2 Euros, the tour explains how they used to process the apples, and how they still get deliveries from outside orchards to contribute to the stock. Things have changed over the years, with giant chilled metal barrels holding thousands of gallons of cider, which, with your complimentary glass, you learn how to pour the cider the Asturian way. We then got a chance to sample the ice cider, which you can by from their store. The ticket you get also buys you a free bottle of cider from the restaurant next door.
