Impressive bouquet of ripe Bosch pear, apricot, Muscat, wild clover and a touch of orange peel. Robust and honeyed in the mouth, it also develops hints of cinnamon to accompany green apple and pear. Delightfully elegant finish.
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.
