A week has flown by since my review of the Beard & Sabre Bubbly Shipment review and it’s time for another review for you guys. Maybe I’ll make it a regular Thursday thing? We shall see how life treats me, but it could well be a regular occurrence. Up next in my cider/perry journey I thought I’d go across Europe to Austria and try some of their perry that I completely forgot I had any left on my cider shelf. Tonight I shall be trying some of the Preh perry from Mostbaron Gourmetmost.

Sticking on the local regional theme, my next drink is going to have to be a perry to mix things up a bit. I’m scanning through the list and then I notice another producer I’ve not come into contact with before. Up next is the Stinking Bishop Single Variety (SV) Perry.

I’m struggling to find new cider at the minute folks. I’ve not been able to get to any cider shops and the supermarkets are not really being much of a help, so it’s time to consult the higher cider shelves now. I climb up high and hope for the best and all I have is the Badger Pear Wood Cider. That will have to do for today then!

After the success of the Newton Court Autumn Harvest Perry, I am really feeling the love for the perry tonight. It’s not often I get in this mood, but it’s nice to be in once in a while. To try and trump the Autumn Harvest I’m bringing out one of the big guns tonight. This is the Flakey Bark Blend Oak Cask Perry from Ross-On-Wye.

I’ve finally made it to the end of my working week and it’s time to get prepared for a 4 day weekend of camping. I know what you’re thinking, I truly must be mad to camp out there and take a risk on the British weather. Then again, that doesn’t matter to me, as it will be a great weekend regardless. To let myself unwind this evening, I’m going to have a couple of perries before shooting some pool down the local. Up first is the Autumn Harvest by Newton Court.

Review/Tasting Notes:

Purchased From: Bristol Cider Shop

I had run my cider shelves dry of proper real cider/perry and a trip to the Bristol Cider Shop was needed to tide me over for a few days. My trips there are becoming increasingly more difficult to find something new and today was no different. After scrambling round the shelves they came up trumps again. 6 new ciders/perries were found and one of them is up today for a review. I closed my eyes and hoped for the best and up came the Tutts Clump Traditional Farmhouse Perry (Medium/Dry).
