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!

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2010 I love this stuff. It’s just what I need to get me ready for a girls’ night out. Yumm!
One sip of Babycham and I’m anybody’s...

Bardzo przecietny, a raczej kiepski cydr gruszkowy, niby produkowany od lat, ale wyglad zarowno plynu jak i plastikowego korka i skromnej etykiety odstrasza. Wyglada niby jak cydr z Normandi lub Bretani ale po zdjeciu zlotka to koszmar wyglada to jak tanie rosyjskie wino musujace. Ciecz jasniutka i malo wysycona. Aromat gruszek znikomy. Ciezko to sie pilo, nawet w letni upal. Nie polecam

tommann (2708) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2013
200ml bottle. Pours like pale piss with no carbonation. Aroma is mouldy cheese, twigs and week old socks. Taste has a little pear on the finish. Water. Just gas in the mouth. There’s fuck all happy about this. Genuine 0.5. I want my 89p back.

hotstuff (4072) - Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2013
Backlog rating 1-04-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a transparent body with fast rising carbonation. The Aroma is sweet, sour, tart, and pears. The Taste is sweet, pears and has a dry finish. The Palate is smooth, clean and this is a medium bodied Perry. Overall the taste is not overly pear tasting and is refreshing in its own way.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2012

Relative brought this one over. Couldn’t remember where he bought it, or when. This stuff has popped up at some bad festivals in my time, but I’ve never seen it for sale anywhere locally before.
Wine glass. Pale, gray, ginger ale, spritzy.
Smells of seltzer & old lady perfume. Bad dried fruit, rubber, & plastic.
Taste was a sugary/soapy mess of baby food pear puree & plastic pen caps. Headache inducing Sweet Tart candies, shot straight to your brain thanks to the harsh carbonation. So much off-putting canned plastic fruit & syrup. Thin. Oddly tart & bitter, like a mild poison.
A disaster. Completely.

Bottle left over from a seventies party that we held a few months back, it was sat looking forlon in the fridge. Consumed 09.07.12 Looks like fizzy water, maybe with just the merest green tint. Sweet, fizzy and forgettable. A bit too fizzy I think, possibly some fruit on the nose, not great but to be fair there are a lot worse drinks out there. A5 A3 T4 P2 Ov9 2.3

(20cl bottle best by 2-4-10 thanks to bu11zeye) clear near water color, very few bubbles. Nose of pear, alcohol, apple and mild funk. Taste of sweetened apple, nicely tart and pears.

(20cl bottle) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of apples, mustiness, and plastic. Flavor of apple, tiny little yellow flowers form my childhood, metal pipe, and some yogurt.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this 20cl bottle. Pours a very light yellow - nearly colorless - with some white bubbles. Strong pear aroma and some slight tart pear characteristics in the flavor. There is something off in the flavor, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Nothing special.
