The second Haddenham Cider competition will be launched on Saturday 11th October at the Homemade in Haddenham festival in Banks Park.
Following last year's hotly contested competition we will once again be looking for the best locally produced cider, with judging in January after the cider has had time to mature.
'Blind' judging for the competition will be carried out under strict rules using a number of categories. The Chair of the judges and local vicar, Margot Hodson, will be announcing the winners.
The top trophy is a 3-handled Wassail cup inscribed 'Haddenham Cider Competition Winner' made by Somerset potter Paul Jessop. The Wassail cup, provided by the Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust, will be awarded to the best cider at the Low Carbon party held on Saturday 10th January 2015. All winners will also receive a certificate.
The aim of the competition is to celebrate and promote local apples and cider making and inspire people to create great cider.
First prize at the 2013/14 competition went to Dave Watkins of Fort End for his brew 'HappyL' (pictured with the judges in the lower image, holding the wassail cup trophy).
Rules of the competition can be obtained on request or downloaded from: haddenhamintransition.org.uk where you can also send a message.
