The firm recovers the history and tradition of the Mexican apple by means of the cider production.
LA SIDRA.- Mexican history about cider and apple orchads is recorded since the foundation of Ciudad de Puebla, taken by the Franciscan Order, whose economy was based in the product life cycle, by means of seeds and apple trees grafting.
In 1531 the city was awarded with the title “Angels Town”, name which gave the inhabitants lands in perpetuity and grain for sowing. This made easier the protection and impulse for old traditions like the apple growing and cidermaking in America.
Nietos de Asturias was born in 2006 in Ciudad de Puebla after acquiring the old Manzanita Zacatlán factory, whose production of fermented drinks and cider is traditional since 1935.
The firm makes and sells a great deal of products related to cider and its by-products: distillates Puommarada and old-aged Trasgu and Apple Trasgu; sparkling ciders Raspberry Sikera and Apple Sikera, as well as the alcohol-free Apple Puommo and Raspberry Puommo; fermented ciders Ambar, Ambar Patona, Patona Rosée, Marques of Asturias, Marques of Asturias Rosée and a type of natural cider; Apple Cream Liqueur; gourmet products like cider jam and apple and cinnamon jam; and apple and cinnamon teas and apple and lemon black tea.
Nietos de Asturias offers their products to wholesalers and also retailers, as well as guide tours in their premises, tastings and a museum with the history of cider, railway and apples.
