About the Asia Cider Championship
The Asia Cider Championship (ACC) celebrates the growing popularity of cider around the region and aims to provide a trusted quality benchmark for consumers as well as independent feedback to the regions' producers.
Ciders are judged by sensory experts and industry professionals and awarded points over 5 categories: Aroma (8 pts), Appearance (8 pts), Flavour (24 pts) & Overall Impression (10 pts). The top 3 ciders in each category are awarded Gold, Silver & Bronze certificates respectively. All ciders that reach a pre-determined quality level will receive a "Chairman's Selection" accolade. The Best of Show cider is awarded Champion Cider of Asia.
