You can find countless traditional beverages in the Basque Country, for instance Txakoli, Rioja Alavesa wines, cider or Patxaran.
We have prepared you a sample of the very best proposals directly selected from the Basque Country.
<h1>Txakoli</h1> <p>Txakoli is generally a young white wine with a moderate alcohol content, a very aromatic and fresh flavour, and a pleasant level of acidity.</p> <p>Its most valuable treasure is its minerality. Through its touch of acidity, you can experience the miracle, the personality and the elegance of the wine.</p> <p>This wine is produced using the indigenous Hondarribi Zuri grape variety, the fruit of very specific agro-climatic conditions with a temperate, wet climate.</p> <p>We bring you a selection of the three appellations of origin that can be found in the Basque Country: Getaria, Bizkaia and Alava.</p> <p>On egin! Bon appétit!</p>
<h1>Cider & Beer</h1> <p>It would be unthinkable to leave the Basque Country without drinking and eating in one of our famous and unique cider houses. Cider is the perfect excuse to enjoy the gastronomy and wonderful atmosphere that can be found at the great txotx fiesta. What is the txotx? Although technically it is the action of tapping the "kupela" (barrel), this magic word, which also refers to the stick used to open and close the barrels, encompasses far more than the simple act of enjoying a glass of good natural cider. For the people of Gipuzkoa, the txotx is one of their hallmarks, being a festive act deeply rooted in friendship, respect, culture and fun. Txotx!!!</p> <p>Our craft beers are equally tasty and you can find a careful selection in this section of our BaskButik.</p> <p>On Egin!! Bon Appétit!!</p>
<h1>Patxaran & Liqueurs</h1> <p>After a pleasant meal in any txoko or Basque restaurant, Patxaran, a spirit obtained by macerating sloes in anise-flavoured spirit, is an absolute must on the table.</p> <p>The sloes give this sweet liquor its distinctive red colour, aroma and fruity taste.</p> <p>In this section you will find the renowned Patxaran and discover other liquid treasures from our region.</p> <p>On Egin!! Bon Appétit!!</p>
<h1>Wines</h1> <p>In this section, Bask Selekt invites you on a trip through different points in the Basque geography, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the Rioja Alavesa and Navarra wines.</p> <p>The climate and composition of the soil are factors that determine the division of the "Rioja" appellation of origin into three areas: Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa. The land in the Rioja Alavesa is rugged, calcareous and very suitable for the cultivation of wine, with short summers and mild winters. The wine presents a more intense colour and inferior acidity level than that produced in the Rioja Alta. The result is a range of tempranillo red wines, that achieve high levels of quality.</p> <p>Travelling east we come to Navarra. Who is not familiar with its famous rosés? Flagships of the appellation! Their quality never ceases to improve, with a more and more meticulous preparation process. The Garnacha grape offers wines with a suggestive colour, a rich fruity aroma and a fresh taste.</p> <p>On Egin!! Bon Appétit!!</p>
