Freihof Williamsburne Pear Liqueur (700ml)
The pear tree was first grown in ancient Europe. Pliny recorded thirty eight different species. Today, that figure is estimated at more than five thousand. Poire William [pronounced pwahr WEEL-yahm] is a sweet pear liqueur named after the variety of pear the French call “Williams Bon-Chretien”, and which secular society calls Bartlett. A Poire William can be either a true pear brandy, distilled from pears and made in Alsace and Switzerland, or a hybrid, made by infusing crushed pear with a grape-based spirit. Some bottles of Poire William have a whole pear inside, a feat accomplished by placing a bottle over the budding fruit and allowing it to grow inside. This is a classic example of the Liqueur, complete with pear, from the famed Freihof Company. 40%Alc./Vol.
