    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.
