Cider & Perry Bar
Please note: the information given here is presented as a guide only.
Beer can be consistently brewed to the same recipe, year in year out, but this is not true for cider and perry. The flavour and ABV of cider and perry is heavily dependent on the nature of the apple and pear harvest of each year, in the way that wine depends upon the grape harvest. Each small batch made is subtly different, even from the same harvest.
Like real ale, real cider is a live product and continues to mature and develop in the box or tub. Sweetness, character and ABV can and will vary, the notes given here are based on last year's products. Please refer to the box end labels for exact ABV numbers.
The only way to find out what it tastes like this year is to try it!
