Origin: [OF. per, F. poir, fr. poire a pear, L. pirum. See Pear the fruit.]
Perry is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented pears. Perry has been common for centuries in England, particularly in the Three Counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, and 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", though some organisations do not accept this as a name for the traditional drink.
