A rare drink from a secret orchard. Vancouver Island perry pears have produced this exquisitely dry sparkler, combining classic English style with Vancouver Island’s pioneering roots. Raise a glass of Sea Cider to the perry of our past!

The Story:

Sea Cider’s Perry is made with true perry pears – a type of pear grown only for crafting Perry – a drink found only in northern France and Britain. Several years ago a heritage perry orchard was discovered a few miles from Sea Cider. A few dozen fifty-foot pear trees stand majestically and are all that remain on what was once acres of farmland. Since then Sea Cider has picked these heritage pears every year to produce a small batch of perry in the traditional Herefordshire style. Fermented with champagne yeast, the hard tannins soften during fermentation to produce this delicately nuanced drink.

Tasting Notes: 

  • Appearance: Clear, light straw in colour, gently effervescent, bright
  • Aromas/Flavours: Pear drops, pear juice
  • Acid/Sweetness: Dry but with hint of perry’s natural unfermentable sugars to balance the acidity
  • Mouth feel: Lightly tannic, sharp

Suggested Food Pairings:

Grilled salmon, shellfish, creamy pasta, Thai green curry, samosas, fried foods (fish & chips, spring rolls, french fries), fresh salads, mild cheeses.
