Perry or Pear Cider?

Perry or Pear Cider?

Perry is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented perry pears. Some commercial perry has also been referred to as pear cider, though some organizations do not accept this name for the traditional drink.

On the flip side, many products labeled as perry are in fact pear cider as they are made from pears other than perry pears.

If this controversy were not enough, there is also on ongoing debate as to how much apple juice should be allowed. Traditionalists insist that perry be made of 100% perry pears, while others allow blends of up to 25% apple Juice.

So which is it, Perry or Pear Cider?

I leave it up to the producer to declare and title my reviews accordingly. So it is ultimately up to you to decide, perry or pear cider.
