Taste NW and the Seattle Cider Awards are independent professional wine recognition programs produced by Advanced Sommelier and 30-year veteran of Food, Beverage and Hospitality Christopher Chan and Channel One Productions. All submissions become property of Channel One Productions for tasting, review, evaluation, recognition and promotional use.
Entry fees are non-refundable and all entrants participating hereby grant Channel One Productions and all subsidiaries the rights to use photos, images, bottle shots, names, labels and information for promotional use, public relations and marketing.
We do not publish names of ciders that do not receive recognition nor do we reveal the wineries/cideries who have submitted products unless they earn awards through the respective programs. Any questions, concerns or decisions are made at the discretion of Executive Director, Christopher Chan and are considered final.
