This is a decadent liquid. I don't buy it often, and it lasts a long time. Otherwise, I'd be spoiled for anything else.
Standard cognac I find too irritating to the throat. The infusion of pears here takes that away. It adds a sweetness not as cloying as a standard dessert wine and far more rewarding.
Everyone I share this with writes down the particulars so they can find it to...
This classic, original elixir, one of France's great liqueurs along with Grand Marnier and Bénédictine, is a blend of Brillet Cognac and the essence of Williams pears (Poires Williams) grown in the Alsace region of France. The perfectly matured pears, personally selected by Jean-Louis Brillet, were picked at their peak of ripeness, macerated, then blended with fine Brillet Cognac. Twenty-two pounds of pears go into each bottle. Serve neat, chilled, over ice, or mixed.
