Perry

Somerset doesn't currently have a huge reputation for perry simply because there just aren't many pear trees left. This isn't going to change any time soon as the trees take a long time to reach maturity although once they do, they can last for hundreds of years. This lack of trees is a surprise as the most famous Perry is ( or should I say was) Babycham which made the Showerings in Shepton Mallet impossibly rich. Their descendants now make Brothers fizzy drinks. Babysham (no spelling mistake) has been made from concentrate for many years and the original orchards have been dug up. This is all a pity as the occasional ancient trees that still survive outside farms produce a majestic drink. Tannic and bitter in its youth, it matures to a smooth aromatic delight. You might guess that we're fans. Roll on 2035 when the tree we've planted gets into full swing!
