Diskin Cider Wins Big at 2019 U.S. Open Cider Championship

Nashville’s first craft cidery takes home three medals at annual cider competition.

In the 2019 sixth annual U.S. Cider Championship, Diskin Cider won a silver for Daydream, a prickly pear rose cider. They also took home bronze medals for their Bourbon Tart Cherry cider and Tiki Tonik pineapple cider.  This makes Diskin Cider the only Tennessee and Nashville cidery to medal.  This also continues the tradition of Diskin Cider being Nashville’s only award cidery and Diskin Cider continuing spread Nashville’s great maker spirit to the South, the United States and now the rest of the world.

In the U.S. Open Cider Championship, cideries, wineries and breweries from Hawaii to Iceland entered over 300 ciders representing 24 different styles. The final round of judging was held in Buffalo, New York, and the judges were from Niagara College Teaching Winery, Niagara College Teaching Brewery and cideries in the Niagara area. Judging in the U.S. Open Cider Championships is blind, and the judges do not know what ciders they were tasting.

Diskin Cider is proud to be Nashville’s first and only craft cidery bringing true local craft cider and hard seltzer to Tennessee and the South. Diskin breaks the mold of overly sweet cider and seltzer with the natural flavor of fresh-pressed juice. Diskin’s tasting room is located in the booming Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood and is open to the public Thursday through Sunday.
