January to April is cider season in the Basque Country, and you will hear the familiar, friendly cry of "chotch" ("txotx" in the local language), which means to break out the cider. At this point, people duck through small doorways in farmhouses and emerge into cavernous rooms filled with enormous chestnut barrels, their glasses tilted towards a fine flow of wheat-coloured cider.
Basque ciders are flatter and drier than their European counterparts, typically between five and six per cent in alcohol content.
ZooteeK has selected the best bottled ciders to be enjoyed by you, confident it can compete - and beat - the popular brands found in Britain.
Small, independent breweries - people who are passionate about pilsners, bitters and stouts - make our craft beers.
