Perry - The Facts!

We make Perry.

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)

I couldn't have said it better myself!
It's like saying 'vegetarian bacon'; bloomin' stupid.

...or is it perhaps that I'm getting old and more grumpy!
