This is the authentic glass designed to serve sparkling cider. Sidra is the regional drink of Asturias in northern Spain. In this cool northern region there are few local wines - thus the tradition of hard apple cider.

In Oviedo and across Asturias are sidrerias or cider bars where you can order a glass of cider poured directly from a keg or bottle.

The custom spread all across the northern coast of Spain,where the same clear cider glasses grace the fashionable pintxos tapas bars of the fabled beach resort of San Sebastián on the Bay of Biscay.

Every evening the streets in the old town are flooded with food lovers pressing into tiny bars, all of which serve sparkling Asturian sidra in these glasses. Sometimes the tapas bar is so popular that glasses of sidra are carried out to the cobble-stoned street in front of the café, to sate the thirst of patient guests.

Each 5 inch tall glass weighs just over 2 ounces, and its gently tapered design is perfect for the proper escanciado pouring. Hold the bottle high above your head and pour a stream of cider into this special sidra glass you are holding at arm's length.

Beyond hard cider, these thin elegant glasses are ideal for serving red and white wine, iced tea or soft drinks.

Steven Metcalf - OLYMPIA, WA  5 Star Rating
"Exactly as described. Appears to be 16 oz. almost exactly, not as heavyweight as a pint beer glass."
