At Commonwood Farm, all our fields and orchards have some rather interesting names...
"Bannut" is the old name for walnut and there have always been walnut trees on our farm, a few remain to this very day although the majority of the trees in The Bannut Orchard are perry pears, hence the name for our Vintage Sparkling Perry and Vintage Pear Spirit.
BOTTLE FERMENTED SPARKLING VINTAGE PERRY 2019
Our Sparkling Vintage Perry is made using perry pears from our traditional orchard that we believe was planted in the late 1700s.
We use the ‘méthode traditionelle’ technique to create this delicious drink.
The pears are pressed, then fermented twice; first in the barrel for a year, then a second year’s fermentation in the bottle takes place. The perry is then disgorged in the champagne style and aged further before release. It is the secondary fermentation that gives our perry it's natural bubbly effervescence.
