Corréu lleutrónicu Asoleyar PDF

The nations present in the Interceltic Festival of An Oriant show their own cider culture.

THE CIDER.- Ireland, Brittany and Asturies are the main cidery countries coming to this international event, each with their own cider style and their own way to drink it.

From the Island od Eire we find industrial ciders like Bulmers, always present in the bars and stands around the concerts, never far away from the most traditional and enjoyable Irish music.

The Breton cider finds its biggest point in the traditional celebrations or "Fest Noz" by the label Loïc Raison, besides the many ciders, chouchens and mead from the local producers. There are also Breton producers of high quality ciders, like brut and cuvée, like the label Kystin.
