Pears lined up ready to meet their fate...to become next year's PERRY!
The large pears are Cambridgeshire eating pears and
the small ones are mostly perry pears from Cambridgeshire - yes
they do exist, and they are often almost spherical and love to roll away.
As anyone who has ever made perry knows, "there's many a slip
twixt cup and lip" so we're keeping our fingers crossed for this batch
as it shows a lot of promise.
Potton Press Cider
"When I can't afford Champagne I drink real cider. When I can afford Champagne...I drink real cider." JW, Potton Press


 

At Potton Press we make a range of award-winning ciders and perries using traditional methods. We only ever use the pure juice of freshly pressed local apples and pears. We pick fruit from our own orchard together with a range of different apples and pears from nearby orchards in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.

After picking the fruit is washed, milled and juiced using a gentle process that uses only mains water pressure. The resulting juice is rich and sweet, almost clear and very fruity. Fermentation of the juice is a slow process and we like to use the natural yeasts present on the apples for this as it gives the mature cider a richer and more complex flavour. After fermentation the cider is left to mature for many months, to allow the wonderful flavours and aromas to develop.

We are based in the lovely Georgian town of Potton in Bedfordshire and our ciders and perries can be found at most local and national beer festivals, as well as in an expanding number of local and not so local pubs. If you would like some of our ciders for your festival, pub or licenced event, please contact us using the form on page 3. A list of outlets will be published here soon.
