Basque Cider Celebration at Wassail NYC


  • Wassail 162 Orchard St New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

THE CELEBRATION OF THE TXOTX

Every spring, Basque cider makers celebrate the release of the new vintage with a night of food, cider, music, and merriment. Together with Wassail in NYC, we are excited to bring this festive culture and tradition to the Big Apple.

CATCH CIDER STRAIGHT FROM THE BARREL

Traditional Basque Sagardoas, or cider houses, serve cider streaming from a tiny spout in enormous chestnut barrels. We've engineered a system to bring the same tradition to NYC. Drinkers can "catch" cider the stream of cider in their glass, a method that aerates the cider and releases its flavors and aromas.

MEET THE MAKERS

Colin, David, and Katie will be there and look forward to connecting with everyone and sharing a wonderful evening.
