NORDIC INTERNATIONAL CIDER AWARDS
The Nordic International Cider Awards in Bergen is the first of its kind. The NICA is a competition and celebration of cider with a regional focus, but an international appeal. Our goal is to create an unique platform for producers, distributors, importers, exporters and the public through an international competition, an industry conference and a cider festival.
The city of Bergen is going to be filled with cider culture, history, tourist attractions, gourmet dinners, cider-activities and more. The Nordic International Cider Awards (NICA) judging day will be held November 10 followed by an international cider conference and cider festival on 11 & 12 november. The awards consist of a broad spectrum of cider products that will be given a judging process. The NICA is to reward and celebrate the diversity and range of varying styles of nordic & other international cider. Ciders are entered to the competition in different categories and will be blind tastes by an expert panel of independent judges and assessed according to their taste, appearance and aroma. Medals and trophies will be awarded with the results published in our social media and press.
