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. Many of their techniques and their current ethos came from these experiments. In fact they still ferment their 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.
“The farm is very much the heart of the company, it’s where we were founded and is still where all our apples are grown, pressed, fermented, matured and packaged.
Here William Churchill, our founder started the business way back in 1920 as a side-line to his Blacksmith’s (now the company’s office).
From these humble beginnings we’ve grown to become one of the UK’s most highly respected and awarded cider companies, fiercely independent and proudly at the forefront of the UK’s cider revolution.
Our craft ciders can now be found in quality bottle shops, restaurants, bars and speciality food shops across the UK, as well as exported to over 10 different countries. “
