Domaine Neige named «Canada Cider Producer of the Year»!
It's 150 rewards received up to now that underline the excellence of our ciders

What a great news!   Domaine Neige won the title of «Canada Cider Producer of the Year» at the 7th Annual New York International Beer Competition.  Over 600 beers and ciders were submitted, from over 14 countries entered in over 50 categories.    In the ice cider category, we won the gold medal for our Neige Réserve and the silver medal for our Neige Première

Domaine Neige also just received the 2018 Reconnaissance Renaud-Cyr in the category of «Artisan-transformateur de produits alcoolisés».  That makes a total of 138 medals for our ciders + 12 official recognitions for our cidery alone. See by yourself the impressive list:
