Mountain West Cider’s Epic Wins: A Spectacular Journey Through 25 Awards
What a remarkable awards season it’s been for us at Mountain West Cider! If you’re a fan of the nuanced flavors and delightful fizz that only craft cider can offer, you’ll understand our excitement. In 2023, every single cider we entered into competition won an award. Yes, you read that right – we’re celebrating a total of 25 awards!
Our journey of accolades began with our Cottonwood Hard Cider, which proudly clinched 1st place at the prestigious Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition (GLINTCAP) in the Hopped Cider category. This victory was more than just a trophy – it was a testament to our ability to compete and excel in the world of cider, and we couldn’t be more proud.
The story didn’t end there. Following Cottonwood’s success, recognition poured in for the rest of our cider entries. Among the standouts were the tantalizing flavors of Pomme Paloma, Desolation, Sweet Alice, 7 Mile, Ruby, and many more. These 25 awards are a clear testament to the exceptional quality, meticulous craftsmanship, and unwavering dedication we pour into every cider we create.
We’re humbled by these recognitions and grateful for the opportunity to share our passion for craft cider with all of you. We believe in celebrating our accomplishments, but we also know that we couldn’t have done it without the support of our amazing community and the tireless dedication of our cider maker, Marcio Buffalo. His knowledge and brilliant cider-making mind have been instrumental in our success.
