The Royal Bath & West Show

The Royal Bath & West Show in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, England, plays host to the world’s largest cider judging competition each spring. Somerset is perhaps England’s best known cider making county and its cider-makers typically take home a healthy share of awards, but entries come from all over the World.

There were 16 different classes (categories) in the judging in 2013, with two of those dedicated solely to entries from outside the United Kingdom. Stonewell Cider received the Highly Commended award for ‘Best bottled cider presented to the retail trade’.
