COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled; available in traditional trademark ’baby’ bottles, in packs of four and in corked 750ml bottles.
Originally developed by Showerings, which ultimately became part of the Matthew Clark / Gaymers group. Following a complex series of takeovers and corporate restructuring activity, the Babycham brand is now owned by Accolade Wines.
It is assumed that Babycham is still produced at Shepton Mallet but this is by no means certain.

A light, sparkling perry that has been bringing sparkle to Britain for over 50 years.
Babycham was launched nationally in the UK way back in 1953, and was possibly the single most significant innovation in the drinks industry at its time and is still going strong.
After 60 years Babycham continues to sparkle. It has unrivalled heritage and is always in fashion. Babycham is ready to party!

danlo (2550) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
20cl bottle. Chilled. Very pale yellow colour, white foam head that dissipates away and aroma of pear with a hint of sulphur. Taste is pear, sugary, sweet, fruity, melon-like and white wine. Thin mouthfeel, light bodied, spritzy carbonation, dry and residual sweet at the finish. OK.

mR_fr0g (9220) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2016
Bottle shared at Leightons place 21/03/2016. Thanks to Paul for this one? Very pale petrol coloured pour with a fine white head. Aroma is tangy apple and fruity pears, some alcohol, cheap. Flavour is composed of harsh tangy, dry apple, harsh solvent, alcohol. Palate is dry and pithy, highish carbonation. Too harsh.

Wee diddy bottle thanks to Paulo, at Cloud City, 21/03/16. Almost translucent yellow with a good white covering that soon dissipates. Nose is sweet orchard, straw, hint of puss. Taste comprises sweet pear jus, sugary, light apple, icing sugar. Light body, touch prickly carbonation, semi drying close. No offence caused here !

Leighton (18525) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Paul. Pours clear, pale yellow, effervescent. The nose has artificial pear, little else. Medium sweet flavor, sugary, some ripe pear, white sugar. Light bodied with soritzy carbonation. Sugary finish, more fake pear. Meh, ho hum.

Scopey (12504) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2016
Mini 20cl bottle shared at Leighton’s. It pours clear very pale greenish gold with a fizzy white head. The aroma is earthy, sweet, pear skin, floral and dull must. The taste is sweet, sugary, candy, oily, fruit juicy from concentrate, pear cordiality a short, sweet finish. Light - medium body, fizzy carbonation and slightly sticky mouth - feel. Not a whole lot going on. Sweet and simple, but not horrific.

jjsint (2328) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle from Costcutters, consumed at home. Light yellow, not as ’sparkling’ as I thought. Very little aroma, gummy bears and plastic. Taste is sickly and weak but not altogether unpleasant. Body is thin and surprisingly flat. Not offensive but not a great perry. Well of course it isn’t.

SarkyNorthener (4059) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle from off licence in wednesbury. Very pale yellow with lots of bubbles. Aroma of faint pear and chemicals. Taste is sweetener, more chemical tastes and a little pear juice, dry. Crap.

The_Osprey (6330) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Like most people in the UK, I’ve had this many, many times in my youth. 200ml clear bottle, 6%, ’contains sweetener’. Very, very pale yellow / green, sparkling, no head at all. Aroma is pear skin, bubblegum, artificial sweetness. Body is light, touch of carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is crisp, sweet pear juice, cordial, white wine. Very easy drinking. Really not that bad, albeit a bit sickly. Better than I remembered.

An interesting take on something more typical. Very mild but starts sweet and finishes dry.

My FAV! So Chammy. Pours well, aroma is deer-like, taste is a bit besides the point. Just look at the friggin DEER! A sparkling deercham - how can you give that a 2?
