Welcome to the 14th Year of the International Cider Challenge.

We are thrilled to be once again returning to live judging.

Backed by a rigorous blind tasting system and with an international panel of experts to taste, assess and award your ciders, this is the competition that counts.

Further opportunities exist for a 360-degree review by entering your brands into the design and packaging awards so your products can be assessed on all levels.

Get brand promotion with all medals and trophies being featured in Drinks Retailing, plus social media through our dedicated channels.

We look forward to welcoming your brands to the ICC 2024.
