Vieille Poire Williams - the elegant fruit spirit made with sun-ripened Williams pears from the Wallis region of Switzerland.
Vieille Poire Williams is the perfect drink to enjoy on those very special occasions in life.
Nowhere else in the world will you find such beautiful, fruity and aromatic Williams pears as those in the Wallis region of Switzerland. That’s why we have been obtaining our fruit from the same producers for many years. They guarantee the quality of the yellow, fully-ripened pears that we need for our fruity, flowery Williams pear spirit to produce the aromatic Vieille Poire Williams, matured in oak barrels.
The mid-flow is the heart of the Williams pear distillate. Part of that is stored in 50 litre demijohns so that it can settle and develop its own very special harmonious taste. The rest is matured in 225 litre barrels made from French oak. To ascertain the ideal time for the assemblage of the two parts, the oak barrels are permanently monitored throughout this period. A sample from each wooden barrel is tasted separately, and only bottled when the quality is totally satisfactory.
With 70cl Etter Vieille Poire Williams you will be enjoying 11 kgs of the best Williams pears from the Wallis region in liquid form. Our product represents the perfect combination of wood and fruit. Try it for yourself. You’ll be delighted!
