The International Cider Challenge (ICC) 2024 is now open for entries as the competition enters its 14th year. 

The ICC 2024 will mark the return of in-person judging sessions following 4 years of online judging. It will also see renowned cider and perry writer Adam Wells (pictured above) take on the role of ICC Chairman for the first time. 

Wells said: “The ICC holds an especially dear place in my heart as the first cider and perry competition I ever judged. In the years since I have seen it go from strength to strength, both in the quality of entries and the rigour of judging panels. 

“Having judged under two phenomenal ICC Chairs – Gabe Cook and James Finch – it’s an immense privilege to follow in their footsteps in 2024. The ICC has highlighted the potential and greatness of cider and perry for years now, treating these often overlooked drinks with the respect they deserve.”

The ICC is open to cider producers from any part of the world. Medals and trophies will be awarded with results highlights published in Drinks Retailing.

Entries will close on May 31 2024. Bottles must be delivered by June 7.
