Press, which I liked, is owned by Butcombe Brewery.
|The full English. [Explanation.]|
|Burrow Mump in Somerset. According to the interpretive material, both|

|Drouin has barrels of Calvados dating back to the war. |
These family, which founded the distillery in 1960,

|The oak tree in Gernika where Basques have traditionally|
met to formalize agreements. This is a descendant of
the original. It's a sacred symbol to the Basques.
|Pinxtos, or Basque tapas, in Donostia (aka San Sebastian). This is one of|
the rare places you don't find cider. Beer or wine is more common. (I saw

|Donostia. It's sometimes called Donostia-San Sebastian, but on road signs,|
the later name was often defaced.
|These glasses were ubiquitous. Short and wide, made of incredibly thin,|
elegant glass. You pour only two fingers from a great height to "break"
the cider--or rouse and aerate it.
|The calendar at Isastegi. On the right is an activity; an apple means it|
happens that month. Edan, for example, means "drinking." Every month!
