One of the most famous products of the municipality is the Peñamellera cheese. It is the heir to a long tradition of artisanship. Despite the fact that it was near the point of disappearing, it has grown in recent years due to the establishment of a cooperative to produce it.
The traditional drink of the municipality, like the rest of the principality, is cider.
