98 points and 'Top 100 Spirits 2015,' Wine Enthusiast: " Juicy and mouthwatering, with lots of bold fruit on the palate plus a subtle flick of vanilla, this Williams pear brandy would make a lovely dessert accompaniment or after-dinner sip. Gift-worthy presentation includes a pear-shaped bottle with a whole pear imprisoned inside. Alcohol 40%. (Oct 2015)"

One of the most delicious and fragrant brandies made from Alsace’s abundant supply of fruit is that of the Williams Pear, Eau-de-vie de poire Williams. It is made by fermenting crushed ripe fruit for up to six weeks, and then distilling it to a relatively low strength which preserves its distinctive bouquet. It is then allowed to age. Believe it or not, empty bottles are hung on trees or bushes, and the young fruit bud is then made to grow inside each bottle. Williams Pear brandy is perfect finale to meal. It should be served well-chilled or on ice, to develop its delicious long-lasting bouquet. Mixes also well with tonic, soda and vermouth. Can be used as topping on a sorbet.
