Williams pear brandy
0.7 l, 43% alc.
Very clear and good pear brandy produced of Williams pear in 13-century Orthodox Monastery of Kovilj
Ripe and carefully selected pear of Williams sort is smashed and left to ferment for a couple of weeks in Monastery cellars. It is distilled in the old way using the modern technology.
|Very nice fruity and refreshing aroma. I asked them whether it was an old recipe. I was amazed: they were the first monks distilling the pear brandy in their monastery. Well done job!
