Cider & Perry

We are, obviously, not concerned with fizzy keg cider or bottled 'pear cider'.     This is the real beverage made from the fermented  juice of apples and nothing else! A ridiculous amount of the fizzy cider you see today is made from imported apple concentrate.

Perry, naturally, is made only from Perry Pears, a strain which had nearly become extinct! Perry is still relatively rare, with only a few pubs stocking it.  The Three Crowns in Chippenham is the only one in our branch of which we know.  Please let us know should this be incorrect .  More perry pear trees are being planted so, hopefully, a greater variety of Perry will be available soon.

More information about real cider and perry can be found here and details of local suppliers and pubs that sell real cider can be found farther down the page.
