Merlet William Pear liqueur (Crème de Poire William) is made with a very characteristic and uniquely aromatic variety. The Merlets source their fruits from partner producers in Val de Loire to guarantee consistent quality. Thanks to their position as currant growers and winemakers, the Merlets are able to exchange with the partner producers and call on their own expertise to select fruits of optimal ripeness. The pears are soaked in pure alcohol to extract all their flavours, then pressed and filtered. This natural fruit infusion is blended with pear eau-de-vie, enhancing its aromatic intensity. Sugar is then added to obtain the Crème de poire. Complete control of every stages of the process, from sourcing the fruits and selecting only the ripest to their transformation by Merlet, guarantees, together with the very high concentration of macerated fruits, the intensity and complexity of the final product.
