Producer's Notes: Icon of the Massenez Brand, the William Pear eau de vie “Prisoner Pear” captivates with its olfactory and gustative qualities and the pear-shaped bottle with a whole pear inside.
The bottle is attached to the pear tree when in flower... so the fruit grows inside the bottle. When the pear is ripe, the fruit and bottle are carefully detached. Williams Pear Eau-de-Vie from the Massenez distillery is outstandingly refined, concentrated and balanced. An intense emotion true to the personality of the original fruit.
Color: Clear, colorless, with characteristic fruit Eaux-de-Vies brilliance. A supple, fluid Eau-de-Vie.
Nose: Clean and typical of Williams Pear, with no strange notes. The intense nose is an indication of the quality of the selection of the original fruits and delicate distillation. Very fruity, long lasting and truly inviting bouquet.
Palate: The rounded ‘’ grain ‘’ of the Pear is very noticeable. In the mouth, a very intense floral note gives great freshness. Intense fruity note, with an initial perception of fresh fruit overlaid by ripe fruit and marmalade or jam. Very prominent spicy endnote with a hint of Liquorice typical of williams pear.
Massenez Williams Pear Eau-de-Vie was awarded the Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial des Spiritueux in Canada in June 2011 and 2012.
