Prizes in Mead Madness Cup are medals, awarded for places 1-3 in each category and diplomas in either printed or electronical form. Additionally, every category winning mead will take part in best of show contest for a chance to be crowned a GRAND CHAMPION title. Commemorative trophies will be given to the winners. As always I suggest you to follow our website and social media for more info and latest news.
Traditionally, in co-operation with one of the commercial meaderies, we’ve prepared a special prize. The winner of Mead Madness Cup HOME, which will be awarded a title of GRAND CHAMPION and a commemorative trophy, will have a chance to recreate their winning mead in a professional meadery. That mead will then be made available for sale and the winner will get first 50 bottles.
