The Canadian Cider Awards is Canada’s national competition for judging the quality of Canadian manufactured ciders. The Canadian Cider Awards invites Canadian majority-owned cideries of all sizes to compete in a certified blind tasting determining the best ciders in a variety of categories.
2018 marks the first year the Canadian Cider Awards are awarded as a bespoke competition, no longer a footnote within the Canadian Brewing Awards & Conference.
The time is ripe to honour the Canadian cider industry. TAPS Media is excited to introduce the Canadian Cider Awards.
TAPS President, Rob Engman, explains “as a response to input from the Canadian cider industry and its continued growth, the time has come to host an all-new, stand-alone competition to honour its importance on the craft beverage landscape. Congratulations to the winners of this inaugural competition.”
