|Cider & Perry|
Obviously we are not talking fizzy keg cider or bottled 'pear cider' Oh no this is the real stuff made from the fermented juice of apples and nothing else! At awful lot of the fizzy cider you see today is made from imported apple concentrate :(.
Perry of course is only made from the Perry Pears which nearly became extinct! Perry is still relaitvley rare with only a few pubs stocking it, the Three Crowns in Chippenham is the only one in our branch that we know of. Obviously is this is incorrect please let us know. More perry pear trees are being planted so hopefully in the future more variety of Perry will be available.
More information on real cider and perry can be found here and details of local suppliers and pubs that sell real cider can be found further down the page.
