400 YEARS BUILDING COMMUNITY AROUND CIDER
Cider has been produced at the Isastegi farm since the 17th century. Their ancestors made cider to drink at home and invited neighbours to enjoy it with them.
There were many cider mills in the Tolosa area and cider production at Isastegi formed part of a culture whose basic drink was cider. A very special, unique product was born of the know-how that comes from practices transmitted from generation to generation.
A profession and way of life
In 1984 Migel Mari Lasa, with the help of his father Joxe Mari, decided to take a step forwards and started commercialising cider. From the beginning he devoted himself to adding his little bit to centuries of know-how and implementing all the necessary procedures for bringing cider onto the market.
In the space of a few years, he achieved a cider that was well received both in the Basque Country and internationally. Today, Isastegi is a cider with its own personality.
