In a nutshell: Medium-sweet, crisp and refreshing, lightly sparkling Somerset cider from Perry's of Ilminster.
The lowdown: Styled on traditional Somerset farmhouse cider made using a blend of traditional bittersweet and bittersharp apple varieties, small batch techniques and wild yeast for a natural ferment. The result is a lightly sparkling medium-sweet cider, left unfiltered for a more authentic taste.
The farm in Ilminster, Somerset where Perry's started out is still very much the heart of the company and where all their apples are grown, pressed, fermented, matured and packaged. William Churchill the founder started the business way back in 1920 as a sideline to his Blacksmith's forge which where the company's office is now sited. From humble beginings they've grown to become one of the UK's most highly respected and awarded cider companies, fiercely independent and proudly at the forefront of the UK's cider revolution. Their craft ciders can now be found in quality retailers, restaurants, bars and speciality food shops across the UK, as well as being exported to over 10 different countries.
