Traditional perry (poiré in French) is bottled champagne-style in Normandy

Perry is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented pears, similar to the way cider is made from apples. It has been common for centuries in England, particularly in the Three Counties (Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire); it is also made in parts of South Wales and France, especially Normandy and Anjou.

In more recent years, commercial perry has also been referred to as "pear cider", but some organisations (such as CAMRA) do not accept this as a name for the traditional drink.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> The National Association of Cider Makers, on the other hand, disagrees, insisting that the terms perry and pear cider are interchangeable.<ref name=nacm>Pear cider ruling gives perry a timely boost, The Grocer, 19-05-2007</ref> An over twenty-fold increase of sales of industrially manufactured "pear cider" produced from often imported concentrate makes the matter especially contentious.
