Golden Eight The Williams Pear Liqueur

Renowned for their liqueurs and eaux de vie, G.E. Massenez have created Golden Eight The Williams Pear Liqueur, a pear liqueur with a base of Pear Williams eau-de-vie.

Golden Eight The Williams Pear Liqueur

Distillerie G. E. Massenez was founded in Alsace in 1870 and is renowned for producing fruit-based eaux de vie and liqueurs. Massenez was the first to distill raspberry eau de vie and has since become known internationally for its Poire William product. The production process remains artisanal and their distillation methods are well-guarded, as they secretly pass recipes from generation to generation.

Golden Eight The Williams Pear Liqueur comes in a keepsake decanter style pear shaped bottle. Almost nine kilograms of pears go into making each bottle with the eau de vie de Poire Massenez over 8 years of age.
