2014 Adelaide Cider Competition

It's that time of year again when cider competitions start up ramping up. It's a great excuse for cider producers to enter their precious produce and get it reviewed and judged against a set of stylistic guidelines. As the 2014 Melbourne Fine Food Awards has been run and won, it's now time to turn our attention to the inaugural 2014 Royal Adelaide Show Cider Competition. I am absolutely delighted to announce I will be judging at this event! I get to judge in my home state, so happy! So to all producers, please, please, please enter this event. You can even enter your kegged cider. It has been organised by some industry greats, and has a great format. Please see the media release issued by the RA&HS below. 


Cider producers from around Australia are being encouraged to enter the new Royal Adelaide Show Cider Competition. Held in conjunction with the popular Royal Adelaide Beer Awards, the competition is designed to recognise Australia’s burgeoning cider industry.  According to Roy Morgan Research, almost 1 in 10 adult Australians drank cider in an average four-week period in 2013, up from 1 in 50 in 2008.
The competition is open to producers of traditional and contemporary ciders in either dry, medium or sweet styles, with bottles, kegs and cans all accepted.  
Major awards will be granted to the Champion Cider, Champion Perry and Champion South Australian Exhibit. 

Entries close on Friday, June 6, at 5pm – visit the ‘Competitions’ tab on for details.

Judging will take place together with the Royal Adelaide Beer Awards from July 14 to 16.
An Awards Presentation, supported by Brand South Australia will be held at a cocktail function on July 18 at The Gallery on Waymouth, Waymouth Street, Adelaide.
