All our spirits are produced on the farm by distillation of cider, perry or fermented fruit mash in our wood-fired copper pot still.
We never buy in industrial or neutral spirit.

Vintage Pear Spirit

This drink starts life, not surprisingly, as a perry pear. We have some grand old perry trees on the farm. They rejoice in names such as Circus pear, Old Fashioned Longdon and Oldfield. They can live to a great age and 300 years is not unheard of. Over the past 40 years we have been planting a number of further varieties (Lumberskull and Merrylegs amongst others). These trees are now big and getting towards bearing a ton of fruit bi-annually (some perry pears like cider apples may bear their fruit every other year)..

Our beautiful, highly engineered wood-fired copper pot still, produces a much more sophisticated drink than in days gone by. The spirit is a mellow, smooth, rounded drink which has amazed the experts by its quality and intense pear flavour. This is put down to our use of vintage varieties of perry pear. There are various ways of mixing this drink (see our cocktails page). A colleague swears by pouring it over his ice cream!

Available in three sizes; 70cl, 50cl and 5cl. The two larger sizes are presented in a tube of our own design depicting May Hill our local landmark. Mysteriously perry pear trees only thrive when grown within sight of this hill. 40% ABV
