Each bottle is made from about 20lbs of pears, every one of them from right here in Palisade. We get them when they are too ripe to go to market, a process that allowed us to save 200,000 lbs of bartlett pears. We take those beauties, open air ferment them and distill them just once before aging in 60-gallon French and American oak barrels. The result is the most delicious pear spirit you’ve ever had.
Our limited edition Pear Brandy is even more special, as each spring we place a limited batch of about 1000 bottles over baby pears and let the pear grow inside it. Lucky little devil, that pear.
