Champion Cider and Perry 2016.

CAMRA has announced the winners of its’ National cider and perry competitions 2016.

The Winners of the Cider Gold Medal are 3 Peace Sweet, by Harding's. 3 Peace Sweet was described by the judges as “possessing an aroma of ripe dessert apples with a flavour that’s fresh and summery with plenty of crisp bite.”

The winner of the Perry Gold Medal is Farmhouse Perry, by Hartland's, which the judges described as being “having a sherry, raisin and fruit cake aroma, and being a refreshing drink with a lingering sweetness.”

The final round of judging for the national Cider and Perry Championships 2016 took place at the popular Reading Beer and Cider Festival. The competition featured ciders and perries from across the UK, with each cider and perry judged on its’ individual taste, aroma, flavour, aftertaste and overall appeal. The top awards were selected by a specially chosen panel of experienced judges, drinks writers and CAMRA members.
