Not often do we drink a liqueur, but when we do, we want it to be the best. We have a favorite apricot liqueur, Marie Brizard Apry, a French cognac with apricot. It is delightful and we enjoy it on occasion as a snifter after a very special dinner. A bartender in the middle of Wisconsin, of all places, treated us to this brandy one year on our anniversary. It has been special to us ever since.
The Trout read on the Internet about a pear liqueur and we had to try it. Oh yes, this is the BEST. Belle de Brillet is a liqueur of a blend of Brillet Cognac and the essence of Pears William (Poire Williams). It comes in a beautiful pear-shaped bottle and it takes twenty pounds of pear to make each bottle. It is a little pricey, but since we only drink this on special occasions, the price is spread out for quite a while.
The taste is very pleasant and absolutely the freshest pear taste you can imagine. If you enjoy a nice brandy or liqueur, I hope you will look into this beautiful pear liqueur or the apricot brandy. I really think you'll like it.
