A pear liqueur from Maison Brillet, made by combining Williams pear eau-de-vie with Brillet's cognac to produce a golden and fruity liqueur.

Tasting Notes (1)

Born in Anjou

The William pears used to make this exceptional liqueur are picked in early September, when the first hints of autumn appear in the orchards of Anjou. After they are picked and given a few extra days of ripening, the pears are deemed to be at peak flavour and aroma, at which point they are crushed and left to naturally ferment. When October comes, they are distilled to produce the pear eau-de-vie that will form the basis of Belle de Brillet.

Made with Cognac

Maison Brillet then blend the pear eau-de-vie with Cognac from a single vineyard in the Fin Bois. The flowers and stone fruit notes of the Cognac add complexity and structure to the fresh character of ripe William pears. A little sugar and Madagascan vanilla complete the picture, contributing softness and body to this singular liqueur.

Belle Bulle

This refreshing spritz lifts the bright fruit profile of Belle de Brillet with citrus and soda for a perfect aperitif.

Ingredients

  • 50ml Belle de Brillet
  • 20ml Fresh lemon juice
  • 100ml soda water
  • 2 olives for garnish

Method

Mix Belle de Brillet and lemon juice in a large wine glass with plenty of ice and stir briefly to chill and combine. Slowly top with soda water, garnish with the olives and enjoy.

    Laurence,

    We visited this distillery in late 90s. What a delight to know the pear liqueur is still available. Golden nectar.

    Dave From France,

    We new we loved this liqueur after buying a half bottle locally, but it is even nicer than we remembered. Sweet, but full bodies and just an excellent taste. I see some of the other reviewers suggest fireside supping, but we found it is lovely on a very hot French evening as well.
