Enter Maeloc. A subsidiery of the folks that bring us Estrella Galicia beer (Hijos de Rivera), they make both sweet and dry apple ciders, along with perry (!) blackberry and strawberry. Maeloc is one of the businesses featured in the initiative Mercado de la Cosecha, sponsored by Hijos de Rivera, R and Gadis, dedicated to fostering sustainable rural development projects in Galicia.
ETA - I just found a blog dedicated to Galician cider (in gallego) Sidra Gallega
Can´t wait to try making some on my own. We´ll need to try to revive the old, very tired and neglected apples on the property and plant some more. The neighbors also had apples that had seen better days.
I´m intrigued by the whizbang design for a press. No sense not using a garbage disposal and a hydraulic automotive jack when they´re so widely available.
