WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Cider has been part of the IWSC awards for three years now, and in that time we have seen a blossoming of the number of categories entered. The IWSC welcomes entrants from all cider categories, including ice cider, keeved cider, bottle fermented cider, still cider and flavoured cider, and also low/no ciders.
At the IWSC we understand the craftmanship that goes into making 100% fermented fruit, not from concerntrate, cider, perries and fruit wines, which is why we judge all these entries separately from other cider, perries and fruit wines entered (made from concerntrate).
We are renowned for our expertise, influence, and personal approach and are proud to champion cider, perry and fruit wine from 100% juice, not from concentrate.
When entering the awards, make sure you select the 'from 100% fermented fruit (not from concentrate)' category to participate in this judging.
The IWSC is the largest awards for low and no alcohol drinks, and we are proud to list low/no ciders amongst our ever-growing categories. With the consumer demand for low/no drinks continuing to grow, the IWSC has been thrilled to see cider producers adding low/no alcohol ciders to their portfolios. The innovation in this space has been impressive with new flavours popping up all around.
At the IWSC, our expert panel of judges is restricted to the world’s most eminent buyers and key decision makers, meaning not only are medals awarded but brands are able to connect with the people that really matter.
