Congratulation to Chase Rochon who has successfully passed his examinations and sensory testing to become a Certified Pommelier.
The CP professional certification has been established by the American Cider Association to provide hospitality professionals a way to develop and demonstrate their knowledge of cider. The first level in the ACA certification program is becoming a Certified Cider Professional.
Rochon is one of only 26 Certified Pommeliers in the country and the first person in Maine to earn that distinction.
Rochon is a co-owner of Craft Curbside in Gray which stocks a wide range of ciders.
