Gwatkin Thorn Perry is a traditional, single variety still perry with a crisp, dry flavour.

The Thorn Pear is one of the oldest and most distinguished of all the perry pear varieties. As long ago as the 17th century it was recorded for its vintage qualities. It is an early ripening pear, harvested in early September. Sadly, like many varieties of quality perry pears, it is now extremely hard to find, and it is mostly found on the borders of Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.

Gwatkin Cider is based at Moorhampton Park Farm in Herefordshire's Golden Valley, where cider and perry have been made for centuries. The Gwatkin family pride themselves on making good quality, traditional, full-juice cider and perry, using 100% fresh fruit juice from unsprayed orchards, without any artificial additives. They have won a number of awards for their ciders and perries, including at Hereford's Beer on the Wye which, in the heart of apple country, boasts stiff competition of over 100 ciders and perries.
