Grand Rapids, MI – Bauman’s Cider was awarded Small Producer of the Year at the 2021 Great Lakes International Cider & Perry Competition (GLINTCAP), a global cider competition that evaluates ciders from around the world and recognizes the most outstanding ciders. Since 2005, GLINTCAP has grown to be one of the most prestigious cider competitions, with over 1500 entries this year, from countries around the world.
In addition to being named the top small cider producer, Bauman’s won three “Best in Show” awards, which are given to the top three ciders in each of 20 categories. This includes Mountain Rose, which placed 2nd in Rosé ciders, Bourbon Vanilla Cider which placed 2nd in Speciality Wood-Aged Ciders, and Strawberry Mojito Cider which placed first amongst 151 entries in the Speciality Cider category.
Bauman’s also received a total of seven gold, nine silver and a bronze medal, recognizing the wide range of ciders they are producing.
“As we have grown and expanded the breadth of our ciders, we have stayed true to our focus on making high quality, approachable ciders with as many ingredients as possible coming from Bauman Farms. It’s super exciting for us to see that focus on quality recognized by the judges at Glintcap, especially given the amazing ciders being produced by so many incredible cider makers around the world,” said Christine Walter, owner and head cider maker for Bauman’s Cider.

While the original recipe has long been forgotten, Christine strives to make cider Stephen would have been proud of, using as many fruits and other ingredients from the farm as possible in her ciders.
