The Itxas-Buru cider house was opened by Ascensio Intxauspe in 1982 and although the cider was already being produced, it was then when the cider began to be sold. The cider house is located on the banks of the Urumea river and currently manages 8 ha of apple orchards, including home-grown orchards and surrounding farms. The local apple has great importance in Itxas-Buru, knowing that quality cider comes from the care of the raw material. The cider is made in the traditional way and, if possible, the apple harvested the day it is pressed, to ensure the best possible juice quality. The quality of the cider from the Itxas-Buru cider house is given by a well-chosen blend of local apples.
