Poires Williams Liqueur
Gabriel Boudier is a family owned company founded in Dijon in 1874. At the beginning of the 20th century there were over 54 companies in Dijon making fruit liqueurs, today there are just six and Gabriel Boudier is the only one that is still independently owned.
Gabriel Boudier exports to 72 countries – Japan being one of the most important -and their iconic Crème de Cassis is recognised all over the world. The original Crème de Cassis de Dijon presentation with its square bottle and Art Nouveau label has never changed.
Provides a wide range of liqueurs based around the most famous product of the company Crème de cassis.
This Williams Pear Liqueur is the result of Gabriel Boudier’s experience both as distillers and liqueur makers which enables us to combine two different processes: maceration and distillation.
Some of the Williams Pears (known as Bartlett Pears in USA and Canada) are distilled in order to obtain the most volatile aromas, while the others are cut in half and, after removing the stalks and pips, are macerated for 5 months in fine spirit to obtain all the natural oils and pectin of the Williams Pears and the heavy aromas that do not transfer during distillation. We then combine the results of the distillation and maceration and add a little sugar to produce this fabulous liqueur.
