The Directorates of Heritage and Rural Development launch an initiative to support the presentation of the candidacy before UNESCO of the Asturian cider culture.

We want the world to know and recognize the bonds of universal friendship that surround the emblematic drink of Asturias, whatever the place or the moment “point out both general directions.
To do this, they have contacted different associations, entities and groups to join the initiative ‘Ambassadors’. “We would like all people who feel identified with this reality and with the desire to achieve this recognition, regardless of the council or age, to join this initiative through their personal support or collectively” they explain and They sentence: “Without this support, the candidature for Intangible World Heritage has no future”.
