Japan Cider Cup

People’s Choice Awards Tasting Competition and International Cider Event

The Japan Cider Cup was launched in November 2022 by inCiderJapan, creating the country’s premier people’s choice awards tasting competition and international cider event.

The tasting competition segment of the Japan Cider Cup is open to all domestic cider producers, cider importers, as well as international entries. Entered ciders are scored across three independent rounds of judging by various members of the general public in Japan and a handful of special-guest cider professionals invited from across the globe. Winners are announced and awarded prizes at the Japan Cider Cup event in April of the following year.

In addition to the awards ceremony, the Japan Cider Cup event offers attendees the opportunity to taste and purchase some of the winning ciders as well as a collection of other assembled vendors’ ciders, beers, and food. During the event, attendees can participate in various entertaining activities including games, raffles, and presentations.
