Description
The Williams pear brandy, often called Willi, is indispensable among fruit brandies. Celebrated on the alpine pasture, appreciated after dinner and wonderfully suitable for any occasion, it is a true classic and all-rounder. The brandy owes its special aroma to the old pear variety Williams Christ, which is widespread in Europe and the USA. Our fully ripe Williams pears come from the beautiful Franconia.
Sensory description
  • The scent of freshly cut grass, as well as an elegant and delicate pear aroma and fruity-fresh citrus-mint notes reminiscent of robust, fresh Pinot Blanc, are present in the nose of this brandy. The fresh pear shows its maturity in the mouth, with the full and ripe pear flavor elegantly balanced by a fine sharpness.
Production
The pears are harvested fully ripe and crushed with a screw pump, then the pulp is fermented under acid protection and oxygen exclusion. The distillation is traditionally carried out using the rough and fine distillation method. This elaborate, double distillation in small copper stills and the careful separation of the "heart" preserves the aromas and results in a natural mildness. From 100 liters of pear mash, we obtain 9 liters of 40% Williams pear brandy, or in other words: approximately 11 kg of pears are needed to produce one liter of Williams pear brandy. The filtration is done using activated carbon, and we only use water for dilution during bottling. No flavorings or sugars are added, and there is no stretching or blending.
