Top Reasons to Participate in the New York International Cider Competition
Expert Judging Panel
We’re the only Competition where all the judges are real trade buyers who are judging the by category and actual price. These judges are buyers from the top US liquor stores, restaurants, importers, distributors and more.
This is an opportunity for you to place your product in front of working industry professionals in one of the biggest markets in the world. All of our judges buy for a living.
This is a wonderful opportunity for an established brand to reconnect and/or be rediscovered by the buying community in a true blind tasting.
