The distillates are only won from the best fruits which were reaped in the perfect maturity stage. So that the flavour of the fruits can develop freely, exclusively particularly soft and natural pure prehistoric rock water is used. This ensures the elegant body of the distillates.
The Williams pear was discovered in 1770 in Aldermaston, England. She is common in Europe and the USA by now. She matures depending on the climatic conditions from the end of August by the end of September. The Williams pears for this brandy are crushed gently and freed from handle and skin. The mush then gets distilled gently in the outgoing fermentation.
The distillery Hubertus Vallendar was chosen the "Distillery of The Year 2011" in two of three possible categories and therefore it is the superstar of the World Spirits Awards 2011 and again in 2012.
