Perry

Perry is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented pears. Perry has been common for centuries in Britain, 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 (such as CAMRA) do not accept this as a name for the traditional drink.

    Joseph O’Donnell, and Clifford Sanforth. Arthur Perry (Bela Lugosi)

    As Ah Ling would say, “Even though the eyes may see, the mind will not believe.”
    Joseph O’Donnell, and Clifford Sanforth. Arthur Perry (Bela Lugosi)

    You’ll admit there’s always the possibility of some employee becoming disgruntled over some fancied injustice. Dissatisfaction always leads to temptation. There’s always purchasers for valuable secrets.
