We’re the only International Cider Competition where all the judges are real trade buyers who are judging the cider by category and actual price. These judges are buyers from the top New York Area liquor stores, restaurants, hotels and more.
This is an opportunity for you to place your product in front of working industry professionals in one of the biggest beverage markets in the world. All of our judges buy cider, beer, and other products for a living.
This is a wonderful opportunity for an established cider brand to reconnect and/or be rediscovered by the buying community in a true blind tasting.
Our competition is perfect opportunity for products trying to break into the New York Market to be tasted by multiple trade buyers.
We work with our media sponsors to distribute the results to the trade and consumer. All the winners will be listed here on our website.
We do not charge winning brands the use of their medals and images in their sales materials.
You are only charged once when you submit your products. There are no additional charges.
We’re the only International Cider Competition using the authorized categories of the United States Association of Cider Makers (USACM)
Winners are featured in articles on our lifestyle blog, the Alcohol Professor.
