Perry’s Cider – Grey Heron 6.5% 35 pint bag in box

Perry’s has been making award winning craft ciders since 1920 when William Churchill acquired the family farm and started making cider as a side line to his blacksmiths business. The company was later taken over by Henry and Bert Perry his nephews who pushed the company forward and continued to experiment with craft ciders.

Much of the techniques and our current ethos came from these experimentations. In fact we still ferment our ciders in exactly the same way and each year will continue to use the two hydraulic presses installed by them in the 50’s. These presses have squeezed over 7 million pints of cider each.

Grey Heron is a sweet, farm pressed single orchard cider.

These presses have squeezed over 7 million pints of cider each.  Today the company is still run by the Perry family with George overseeing the day to day running of the company and cider production.

Perry’s farmhouse cider is styled on traditional Somerset farmhouse ciders.  They follow four important rules: natural ferments using ‘wild yeast’, small batch techniques, 100% juice and of course using only traditional bittersweet and bitter sharp apple varieties.
