Perry

A light and fruity sparkling alcoholic drink similar to cider but made with pears rather than apples. Waitrose Vintage English Perry (500ml) is made in rural Herefordshire from specially selected English Perry pears, grown in this region since Norman times. It is fermented and matured in old oak vats, where it develops its special strength and unique flavour.

Uses: Serve chilled as a refreshing long drink. Perry can also be used in cooking include in chicken or pork casseroles or in sauces to serve with grilled chicken fillets or pork chops.

To store: Keep in a cool, dark place. Once opened store in the fridge and consume within 3 days.
