As a small, family-run Norwegian cidery that is still in its infancy, we are extremely honoured and very proud to win a Trophy for our NeRø Ice Cider in ICC 2022.
This competition has offered us fantastic feedback and confirmation that we are on the right track with the development of our ciders. It’s the first international challenge that we have participated in, so to achieve such a prestigious award will forever be very special to us.
Being awarded a Trophy at the International Cider Challenge 2022 for our brand Purple Twist has given us great satisfaction. It is not a point of arrival, but a continuous work that pushes us to improve every day. We believe that the ICC is defined as one of the most important international cider competitions in the world, so winning this award is hugely important to indicate that the quantity and quality of ciders across Italy is not just growing but also of a high standard. Achieving this trophy is a welcome milestone for Apple Blood Cider
We are very excited that 1785 Cider - Barrel #4 was awarded an ICC 2022 Best in Category Trophy. There are few cideries in our region, so the opportunity to benchmark our products against respected European cideries and global producers is invaluable to us as makers.
These awards also provide welcome guidance to consumers, who may not have had a lot of exposure to fine cider.
We particularly appreciate the ICC for its top-notch judging panel, insightful tastings notes and well-defined evaluation system.
ICC awards are hard earned, and we are very proud to be among the 2022 recipients.
To be recognised by the ICC is the result of a lot of hard work and much dedication by every single member of our passionate and very talented team.
Winning awards is always a great accomplishment for us, however, winning an ICC Trophy for ‘Cidrerie Beaupré’ has been the sum of great achievements. We have the quality of our products at heart and take great pride in our work. It is a great honor to be recognised around the world in a renowned competition that regroups so many great cideries.
Winning a trophy at The ICC 2022 is a dream come true. News that Cidentro had received a gold medal and won the trophy in the Naturally Sparkling Cider Category came as somewhat of a surprise as we knew we had faced strong competition, and this was one of the biggest accolades in the cider industry. Together with multiple medals for all our ciders and an award for design & packaging, this really is an achievement for the Cidentro team and an endorsement of quality for our Cidentro brand that customers will recognise. The hard work, time and energy put into building the business is reaping the rewards of success and having celebrated this, it’s now time to get back to the business of harvesting for another year’s cidermaking. Thank you, International Cider Challenge.
