La Poire d’Olivet, a traditionnal manufacturing process

Each of the Manufacturing Stages is carefully and rigorously carried out in the heart of the historic building of the cooperative to obtain the quintessence of the Williams Pear.

The captive fruit contained in the bottles have spent three years soaking in alcohol. By the time that alcohol is replaced by Williams pear brandy before marketing, the fruit will have given up all its juice and no longer alters the unique flavour of the brandy.
