Pear Cider!

Any fans of pear cider? I like Ace but love Magners! I have heard rumors that Strongbow is making a pear cider but have yet to see in the States.

Heard good things about the Strongbow brand! I'll have to look into it as I am a fan of hard ciders.

Pear cider ( mutter mutter if it's alcoholic and made from pears it's already got a bloody name in English and that's Perry not pear cider but trust marketing men to dumb down bah humbug!) is everywhere over here in the UK with M&S, Tesco's, Asda(Walmart) all doing their own brands(Most supplied by Gaymers, Thatchers or Westons) as well as various others coming to the fore, the

The M&S and the Brothers are very nice, quite sweet and waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too easy to drink especially at 7.3% and 6% respectively.

Grymm, I am so glad you piped up and mentioned that there is a well established name for "pear cider" already! Every time I saw a post about it under that name a part of my brain was going "but, but, but..., it's perry!" :wacko:

I understand it is more difficult to make than hard cider is from apples because it has different organisms that make it alcoholic, and it can go "off" more easily. It is delightful stuff, well worth whatever extra effort goes into it!

Reenactor Gareth Pugh ordered me some of that in a pub in Wales. Fine stuff.

Sorry Grymm and Jen. As a foolish colonist I used the name it is called on this side of the ocean. I knew of "perry" and that it had a long history. Where I live it is marketed as "pear cider", which is old since cider is apple.

Jib,

No worries. As Grymm pointed out, it's the marketing folks who have created the name difference/confusion, as if people were too dumb to figure it out. Someone is missing out on a great marketing campaign for it as perry, really.
