Perry is made in a similar way to cider, although using fermented pears and has been popular in England for centuries. The majority of perry varieties originate from the three counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
Although the brand Babycham was hugely popular in the 1970s, the second half of the last century saw a huge decline in perry consumption. However in recent years times both cider and perry have enjoyed a revival with brewers like Gaymers, Bulmers and Magners all introducing a pear cider variety and many supermarkets increasing the number of perry and pear cider brands that they offer to consumers.
