Yes, brewed up ere in Suffolk, lovely stuff. You should try the Perronelle Blush variety too - dearer but worth the extra.

You'd have thought that a cider maker would know how to spell cider.

By a strange coincidence - tried this (the blush) at the weekend - not bad.

Oh God, I'm with you on that one MM!! Excellent cider (has to be ice cold though). If you can find it, Thatchers Pear cider is very good too, not as sickly as the rash of Pear Ciders that've appeared recently. :freaky:

Out of curiosity, what (if anything) is the difference between "pear cider" and perry? Is it just that the marketing people assume that the general public are too thick to know what perry is?

Cider is definitely the thing to drink when out in the sun, very refreshing.

I don't think there is one, but I'm prepared to be put back in my box if somebody would like to explain the difference.

I think a lot of people are put off cider when they are young by drinking White Lightning and other similar gutrots. Even the standard cider fare (Dry Blackthorn and Woodpecker etc) can be pretty rough when swilled out of a plastic 2 litre bottle.

Stuff like Aspalls, out of the bottle, are the malt whiskies of the cider world, and would appeak to more older folk if they could get over their white lightning memories.

That's right, it's the same thing. I don't think it's a question of trying to fool the public, more one of rebranding it to make it sound a bit more "manly". Your average chap in a boozer is more likely to ask for a pint pear cider than a pint of perry.

Aspalls is lush...also Thatcher's Katy and Henneys. Great on a hot day, ice cold.

Very true. "White" ciders are just meths for Chavs.

There is no significant difference in the method of making cider and perry, only the fruit ingredient. (Except the pears cannot be windfalls and the apples can, and the apples don't need washing but the pears do if they are mucky.)

It's because only Xeno would order perry in a pub.

Maybe it's an age thing - I asked this very question of Mrs PB when she came in raving about some new Pear Cider - she'd never heard of Perry. It must that she's five years younger (can't be that she's ignorant).

Especially since Vimto tastes like month-old placenta blended with cat shit.
