This is our pick of the best craft perries available in the UK. They are all proper perry made from traditional perry pears by some of the best perry producers in the world.
Perry is a light and delicate drink which is much closer to wine than it is to 'pear cider' which is often confused for it. Perry has a very distinctive flavour and is often described as having floral notes and hints of elderflower. Traditionally it was thought that the best perry was made within sight of May Hill, on the Herefordshire and Gloucestershire borders. Our collection includes several crackers from that very area, plus a couple from other leading craft producers.
We put together our mixed cases from the best ciders and perries that are available throughout the year so they are liable to change but a typical box will include
Burrow Hill Perry (6.3%) Somerset
One of the few genuine Somerset perries, made from a blend of Thorn, Brandy and Hendre Huffcap pears. Nice, clean, fresh drinking perry with a dry finish.
Bushel & Peck Smooth & Subtle Perry (6%) Gloucestershire
Fruity perry with "a precise acidic twang"! Made with a blend of perry pears gathered from some magnificent old trees from all over Gloucestershire.
Dunkertons Organic Perry (6.9%) Gloucestershire
Organic Perry with a distinctive perry pear fragrance and a delicate creamy flavour perfectly balancing initial sweetness with a dry finish.
Newton Court Panting Partridge Organic Perry (5.3%) Herefordshire
Made with perry pears hand-picked in orchards from Yarkhill to Much Marcle. Medium with a juicy pear taste and delicate wine finish.
Olivers Wild Ferment Rolling Blend Perry (6%) Herefordshire
We couldn't pick a perry selection without including Tom Oliver, one of the best know perry makers in the world. "Bracing citrus acidity and fruitiness, think rhubarb and goosebery, hints of melon and elderflower mingle with honeyed sweetness and prickling sparkle. Wonderful. Drinks beautifully straight from the fridge."

A lovely fruity, easy-drinking, perry from Mike and Albert Johnson at Broome Farm. These guys know their pears and have blended this to perfection.
