Artistraw Pygmy Perry is a naturally petillant, medium, pure juice Herefordshire Perry. Unfiltered and unpateurised, it is made from the ubiquitous Blakeney Red perry pear, hand-picked and batch fermented with nothing added. This is a pure expression of the alluvial terroir by the River Wye where these pears grew. It is fruity and easy drinking, with hints of melon.
Tom and Lydia started Atristraw Cider after moving to Herefordshire's Wye Valley in 2017. They discovered the name Artistraw in Kilvert's famous diaries, it being a local term for a shrew. Inspired by Normandy, they work with the seasons to make natural, full-juice cider and perry from local fruit, using minimal intervention techniques. They are rapidly gaining acclaim and won Highly Commended at the Royal Three Counties Cider and Perry Competition 2018.
