It's a bit like Cider but made from Pears not Apples.
It's not a Cider, because Cider is made from Apples.
We don't make Pear Cider, although the Kettering Evening Telegraph seem to think we do (see right).
So, in conclusion:
- Cider is made from Apples (We make some of this)
- Perry is made from Pears (We also make some of this)
- Pear Cider is a bit like renaming Beer a 'Malt & Hop Wine' for the benefit of wine drinkers who might not understand what it is. Ridiculous! (We don't make any of this)
