Default Pouring a Basque Cider

Does anyone have any tricks on pouring a basque cider. Maybe it's the bottles that sarasola comes in, but we can never pour it slow enough to control the pour, without cider running down the outside of the bottle. I've even been practicing with water- does anyone have any tricks to getting a nice pour like the spanish people in the videos do...

a lot of places i have visited in the basque country and asturias have a little plastic cap that sticks in the bottle top and forms a t-junction, it both directs the liquid stream to the lower side and lets air in the upper. maybe it's cheating a bit but even the asturian waiters usually used it, and that's the heart of spanish cider country

great now i'm thirsty

thanks! i have some wine cappers that i'm going to experiment with to see if i can make something. it seems like all the bottles are the same, but if you pour too slow, it runs down the side of the bottle and gets on your fingers and arms (eww- it's all sticky)- maybe i can decant into a pitcher or something and then pour that- although, taste aside, the coolness factor is through the roof- and a pitcher would take a bit of that away...

you are the man dinnerstick!! - i threw one of those little olive oil spouts in the end of the bottle- more conspicuous then the green dealie, but i'm not trying to fool anyone (unlike those spaniards were me- wait are basques spaniards?) anyway - IT WORKS!! i got from the glass to one meter in like a half a second and it doesn't splash too bad if you roll it down the side of the glass. I can't wait to impress everyone at the tavern with this... Thanks a million dude- nothing like first hand experience to indoctrinate the uninitiated!

Nope, some are French. But I would recommend against calling them either French or Spanish to their faces.
