J Vineyards & Winery-Russian River Pear Liqueur NV
In 1995, Bartlett Pear juice was fermented to dryness in stainless steel tanks. The juice was then double distilled in copper alambic stills, yielding a pear brandy (eau-de-vie) of approximately 50% alcohol. The pear eau-de-vie was aged for 10 years in 90 gallon Limousin oak barrels. Distilled water and liquid sugar were added to reduce the alcohol level to 30% (60 proof). The sugar broadens the palate and takes away the heat, bringing forth the pear essence. The liqueur was then cold stabilized and aged for an additional 6 months before bottling.
This limited offering liqueur glimmers through the glass a golden green hue. A beautiful effervescence of delicate yet bold pear on the nose. Honey and fruit slow dance through the palate leaving a flavorful symphony of lingering, lasting notes to remember.

J Pear Liqueur explodes in the glass with bright pear essence, butterscotch, chamomile, and vanilla aromas. A hint of apple pie and cinnamon notes blend with the aged cognac character. The flavors are predominantly that of baked pears, honeysuckle, butterscotch, and honey with an extremely long aftertaste of pears.
