We are delighted to tell you all that our organic Perry won silver medal at the U.S. Open Cider Championships. Our drinks have only recently arrived Stateside so the fact we have won a silver medal at such a prestigious cider competition in our first year of availability in the US is obviously extremely satisfying.
Cideries from California to the United Kingdom sent in over 160 ciders representing 15 different styles. The U.S. Open Cider judging had an additional international touch since the final judging occurred at the Kame & Kettle Beer Works in Fonthill, Ontario near Niagara College. Judges were from Niagara College Teaching Winery, Niagara College Teaching Brewery, local cideries and restaurant owners. Judging in the U.S. Open Cider Championships is blind, and the judges do not know what ciders they are tasting.
