  • Poire William Brandy

    Popular in Europe, the soul of this beautiful distillate is the fully ripe Bartlett pear, which is carefully ripened further in fruit bins (Bartlett pears are the only fruit whose taste density can be improved through supplementary ripening). Fermented at precisely the height of their aromatic development, these pears are distilled to create a fine and delicate brandy. Our Poire William is an optimum presentation of elegance and gentleness, which is typical for this fine pear.

    Alc./Vol.: 60%

    A distilled spirit produced from 100% B.C. fruit. Fruit is carefully selected then fermented for 2-12 weeks before being double distilled in our Alembic Brandy Copper Pot Still.

    It is then cut with locally sourced crystal clear B.C. Spring water to prepare it for bottling.

    The result is a traditional 'Schnapps' style fruit brandy encompassing a richness in aroma, taste and premium sipping quality.

    Enjoy neat, over ice or as a component in cocktails and cooking.

    *No sugar added. Gluten-free.
